Sedation, Observation and Anesthesiology

UMACH_specialty_anesthesiology

Does your child need a surgical or medical procedure that requires anesthesia? Our doctors have just the right approach, based on their highly specialized pediatric training and experience. We understand how “going under” might be stressful for some children, so we use gentle, age-appropriate techniques to help your child relax. For example, we’ll let your child choose a favorite scent when introducing the sedative. Having a choice empowers your child to be an active participant with his or her providers.

Depending on the type of procedure involved, our pediatric anesthesiologists will explain their role and purpose to you, answering all your questions. They’re skilled in pre- and post-operative anesthesiology, as well as all non-surgical procedures that require sedation. All our providers specialize in working with infants, children and adolescents. To support their work, a team of child-family life specialists can help prepare children for their procedures.

You child has access to these services:
• Evaluation of complex medical issues in infants and children who require surgery
• Pre- and post-surgery planning and care
• Pain control after surgery with medications, intravenous, or other pain management techniques
• Anesthesia and sedation for non-surgical procedures such as:

o MRI and CT scans
o Radiation therapy
o Respiratory and airway management
o Eye exams
o Biopsies for kidney, liver, muscle
o Lumbar puncture
o Pulmonary (lung) function tests
