Pre-Anesthesia Screening Process

Doctor making notesYour child will have a procedure or operation and will be given medicine that will make them sleep called anesthesia.  

The Pre-Anesthesia Clinic at SickKids screens your child for health conditions, medications and other things that may increase their risk of reacting badly to anesthesia.  You will be asked many questions about different aspects of your child's day to day health so that the anesthesiologist can make a care plan that is specifically for your child.  Your child's anesthesiologist may also ask you to take your child for some tests or other appointments in order to make the best possible care plan.
