Special Issue "Pediatric Anesthesia"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2020).
Pediatric anesthesiology is a subspecialty of anesthesiology that encompasses multiple aspects of perioperative medicine for children undergoing surgical procedures, imaging, and other diagnostic or therapeutic interventions requiring sedation or anesthesia. The first recorded pediatric anesthetic happened in 1842 ,and it was noted early on that children have a profile of anesthetic complications that is distinct from that of adults. The field progressed from being a subspecialty of surgery with limited understanding or appreciation for considerations of pediatric patients to a specialized practice that accounts for the unique clinical and social dynamics of caring for children. The spectrum of current specialty activities is wide and includes pain management, sedation, and critical care. Anesthesiologists interact with almost all other specialties, departments, and administrators and must show collaboration and leadership skills to be effective. Recent innovations to the field include regional nerve blocks, point of care ultrasound, and collaborative safety initiatives. This Special Issue of Children aims to advance pediatric anesthesiology by compiling manuscripts written by current physician scientists on any of the topics above as well as other relevant topics.
