What does the children's anesthesiologist do?
What does the pediatric anesthesiologist do during the operation? The operation is a surgical way of treating any diseases. However, every surgical intervention or even minimal painful manipulation causes a stressful response of the body to the stimulus. The cause of this condition can be not only the pain factor, but also changes in the circulatory system, for example, due to blood loss, gas exchange disorders or biochemical changes.
The response of the body is conditioned by activation of the neurohumoral system, as a result of which spasm of the peripheral blood vessels is observed, which leads to additional production of catecholamines. Thus, the circle closes, and regardless of whether the cause continues to act or not, the reaction of the body is already conditioned by the reactions that have been triggered.
What does the children's anesthesiologist do? It is to avoid the activation of such processes that a careful monitoring and participation of the children's anesthesiologist is necessary. His duties include not only the removal of pain and disabling the child's consciousness for the time of surgery, but also ensuring the safety of his life, both in the process of surgical intervention, and soon after anesthesia and the postoperative period.
What diseases are treated by an anesthesiologist?
Anesthesia and resuscitation in medicine most often solve the same questions, therefore in most clinics these branches are connected. The main task of the anesthesiologist is the moral and medicament preparation of the child for the operation, control over the state of the baby during surgical intervention, as well as keeping it in the early postoperative period.
What diseases are treated by an anesthesiologist? A pediatric anesthesiologist prepares the child for the forthcoming operation. In addition, in the presence of a certain pathological condition, the anesthesiologist tries to turn it into an inactive state in order to prevent surgical intervention. As for the postoperative period, in some cases, children require intensive care. This is due to the characteristics of their anatomical and physiological structure, so that in childhood, critical states occur much more often than in adults. Especially when carrying out even an insignificant surgical manipulation, in most cases anesthesia is required.
The pediatric anesthesiologist corrects the impaired vital functions and maintains them at the required level.
