Cardiac Anaesthesia

The Division of Cardiac Anaesthesia (Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine, Hospital for Sick Children) comprises of eight individuals with specific expertise in the care of children with heart disease.  This involves evaluation, preoperative assessment and consultation and perioperative care including pain management and anxiolysis.  These physicians take care of all children undergoing surgical repair of heart disease and are responsible for the care of children with heart disease undergoing other surgical procedures.  Several members of the division are involved in research, including innovative approaches to surgical treatment, cardiovascular physiology and new technology.  We work very closely with our partner divisions, which together comprise the Labatt Family Heart Centre.
