Pediatric Anesthesia  

When children need surgery or some other complicated treatment, they may need to go under anesthesia during the procedure. However, children have different requirements when it comes to sedative medications. Their bodies are more sensitive to the effects of anesthesia and they can get overwhelmed when they face a medical procedure. 

At the same time, it is important that your child is relaxed, comfortable and stays very still during the procedure in order to obtain the best possible images or result. Sedation medication can make this possible. Your child will feel relaxed and drowsy, and she won’t feel any pain during the procedure or remember it afterwards. 

The Pediatric Sedation Program at Palm Beach Children’s Hospital is designed to provide our pediatric patients with the individual, specialized care and medications needed to alleviate both physical pain and emotional anxieties. To make sure your child gets the right type and dosage of anesthesia, our team of skilled pediatric anesthesiologists performs detailed screening and continuous monitoring before, during and after the procedure.
