and Your Child
This patient-education brochure was developed with input and review by the AAP Section on Anesthesia and Pain
Medicine. The two-color, 12-panel brochure provides a clear explanation of what happens before, during and after
anesthesia. The brochure answers frequently-asked parental questions in easy-to-understand language.
Preparing for Anesthesia
- What are the risks of anesthesia for my child?
- What do I tell my child about anesthesia?
- What if my child gets sick just before the scheduled time?
The Day of the Procedure
- Can my child eat, drink, or take medicine on the day of anesthesia?
- What will my child do while waiting for anesthesia?
- Will my child be worried?
- How will anesthesia be given to my child? Can I be with my child when anesthesia is started?
After the Procedure
- Where will my child go after the procedure?
- How will my child behave after the procedure?
- Will nausea and vomiting be a problem?
