Anaesthesia for children and young people


Leaflets have been specifically prepared for children and young people of different ages. They have been written by a team of parents, play specialists and doctors, with advice from hundreds of young people aged 4 years and upwards. ‘Anaesthesia information for children and young people’ is a project of the Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland and the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
