Preoperative anxiety in children - risk factors and non - pharmacological management
Middle East Journal of Anesthesiology, 03/02/2012Ahmed MI et al.
It is important for anesthesiologists to appreciate the impact of preoperative anxiety in children. Not only does it cause suffering in many children prior to their surgical experience, it has a negative impact on their postoperative recovery and possibly long afterwards. Because of these concerns, continued research is warranted to seek ways of minimizing their fears in the perioperative setting.
