Abstract: 
Anesthesiology as a medical speciality had its beginning early in the century when physicians began to manage vital functions during surgery in addition to simply performing the surgical preequisites of inducing unconsciousness and wakening patients at the end of surgery. Complex surgery performed on sicker patients become increasingly possible as physician - anesthetists developed techniques for critical care and active preoperative management of vital functions the general public understood little of these developments. We tried to evaluate patients's knowledge about Anesthesia and responsibilities of anesthesiologists and determine effects of several factors on it. We studied 400 patients who refered to anesthesia clinic for preoperative assessment in Sina Hospital from October 2003 till March 2004.We asked the patients to fill out our questionnair before preoperative evaluation. The mean age of our patients was 40.2 years with standard deviation of 15.2 Mean knowledge of them about anesthesia was 43.3 with standard deviation of 21.There was no correlation between patient's knowlege about anesthesia and factors such as age, sex, prior anesthetic experience and fear, but there was direct correlation between patient's knowledge about anesthesia and education, job, willingness to preoperative evaluation by physician, cause of fear, willingness to spinal anesthesia and confidence in physicain (p<0.001).Thus we found strong correlation between patient's knowledge about anesthesia and their confidence in physician or cooperation for regional anesthesia.
