Paediatric Anaesthesia Outside the Operating Room in Children (preprint)

Abstract: The increasing number of procedures carried out in children outside the operating room places a greater demand on anaesthesia care providers by expanding the scope of work and the need to maximize the often-inadequate equipment in the remote settings. The practice and approach in Non-Operating Room Anaesthesia differ between centres across the world largely due to the range of procedures and its indications, skill of personnel as well as available medication and equipment. Every practitioner however believes that adequate quality of care and safety of patients must be ensured just like in the main operating room. It is therefore essential to utilize appropriate protocols and guidelines on patient selection, monitoring and management of common complications for successful outcome.
