Unlike some years ago, advanced medicine has made anesthesia an absolutely safe procedure. We have dedicated pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists at Rainbow Children’s Heart Institute who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to deal with any medical emergencies that may arise.
Diagnosing and then attending to the treatment of the tiny, complex hearts of infants and young children need the best specialists who bring with them extensive training and many years of experience. At Rainbow Children’s Heart Institute, we have pediatric anesthesiologists, whose expertise in the field of managing heart diseases and supporting heart surgeries performed for infants and children makes them some of the finest in their field.
Before the surgery, our pediatric anesthesiologists examine the children thoroughly, and then seek the advice of the surgical team. They provides pain control during surgery, while also monitoring and supporting critical functions such as breathing during surgery. The pediatric anesthesiologists also oversee pain management post-surgery, right up to discharge.
They are also involved in regular, multidisciplinary cardiology conferences with your child’s cardiologist, cardiothoracic surgeon, nurses, as well as all other appropriate medical staff to engage with and prepare a minutely detailed, coordinated care plan for every young patient at RCHI.
