Preview

The anesthesiologist is increasingly being called on to provide pediatric anesthesia care for children in settings outside the operating room (OR). Providing anesthesia in these off-site venues challenges us to gain a familiarity with the procedures, tailor an anesthesia plan to the procedure and location, as well as to plan for the management of life-threatening situations. This chapter will review the different off-site locations and discuss the unique aspects of patient management associated with each area. Typical locations are outlined in Table 24.3.
