These are worrisome symptoms and signs: severe pain in upper or lower limb, more by night, not relieved by regular pain killers and associated with swelling. Your child is not eating well and losing weight in short period of time.
If your child has an illness, injury, or disease that requires surgery or a procedure, a Pediatric Anesthesiologist has the experience and qualifications to assist in the treatment and to help ensure that your child undergoes that treatment safely.
A pediatric anesthesiologist is a fully trained anesthesiologist who has completed at least 1 year of specialized training in anesthesia care of infants and children.
Always follow doctor’s instructions about avoiding food and drink before surgery. Fasting is usually necessary starting about six hours before surgery. Your child may be able to drink clear fluids until 2 hours before anesthesia.
Your child must be fast:
2 hours for water and liquids such as apple juice (1/4 cup).
