Pediatric and Neonatal Anesthesia
Pediatric anesthesia is a specialty with expertise, focus and sensitivity to the particular needs of children and their parents. The reason that a child needs anesthesia for procedures, like MRIs or endoscopies, is because it ensures that they will remain very still and calm. This enables the technician to obtain all the results and photos they need for the physician to diagnose and treat the child. Furthermore, the anesthesia ensures that the child will feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure.
