Panel Session Content: Neurocognitive Effects of General Anesthesia in Children: Research, Rumors, and Real Parental Concerns:
Know that families will be “shopping” for institutions and physicians that are modulating their approach when possible.
Know the potential short-term and long-term outcomes. Convey the most common surgeries performed in children under age 5 and the groups at highest risk for peri-operative complications.
Know that we do not have all the answers, medications or technologies to guarantee that no child will be susceptible to short-term or long-term neurocognitive outcomes.
