Neonatal Anesthesiology

When a premature infant needs surgery or a medical procedure, safe and effective anesthesia is a major concern. Anesthesia is administered to even the youngest babies, including neonates and premature babies. Proof demonstrates that these neonates do respond to pain and can incredibly profit by anesthesia during medical procedure or other excruciating or unpleasant systems. Anesthesia is suggested when a premature infant or a neonate undergoes a surgical procedure early to treat a condition.

Anesthetic management of the premature infant and the neonate is an important aspect of the practice of pediatric anesthesiologists. A pediatric anesthesiologist is a fully trained anesthesiologist  who has done specialized training in anesthesia care of neonates and pediatrics.
