Anesthesia for pediatric patients begins with a complete history and physical
examination, and a review of family history and the patient’s medical chart. Since most
surgeries performed in the pediatric population are planned, preoperative preparation is
essential. Some of the more common pediatric surgeries include strabismus correction,
tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, pyloromyotomy, appendectomy, circumcision, and
hernia repair. This chapter will review the anesthetic management of the
aforementioned surgeries.
