A guide to understanding anaesthetic management


The first time a child has an operation or investigation under general anaesthetic is a very anxious time particularly if those involved, for example, parents or carers, have no previous experience or knowledge of the process. This anxiety is particularly heightened where a disabled child or adult is concerned and parents are often essential members of the caring team.

This guide concentrates on the procedures involved in having a general anaesthetic and special considerations for individuals with MPS or related diseases. Its aim is to provide some of the background information that parents need in order to make informed decisions about anaesthesia and what care will be required after the operation or investigation.
