Anesthesia 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?
