I don't know, chiezda, thats sounds unusual to me. For everything from contaminated water to medications, children are at greater risk in the safety arena.
I'm not a specialist in this area though, but i found a couple things that might help.
"Information available on anesthesia adverse outcomes suggests neonates are at higher risk than are older infants and, in turn, older infants are at greater risk than pediatric patients older than 2 years of age.21-28 The following age categories are recommended: 0 to 1 month, 1 to 6 months, 6 months to 2 years, and older than 2 years. Because of the anatomic, physiologic, and psychological differences between children and adults, additional differentiation of pediatric age groups for patients older than 2 years is recommended."
"Although the relative increment with sevoflurane vs. other volatile anesthetics remains unclear, emergence delirium has "emerged" as a real clinical problem. Although it can be found with adult patients, it is particularly problematic in children."
Is your son's mole potentially dangerous?
My daughter has a hernia in her bellybutton since she was born, it looks like it might be a bit smaller, but if it doesn't shrink then she'll need an operation to fix it. Some doctors wait till they're 2 years old to fix it, some 3, some 4. It can cause problems but rarely does. I think we're going to wait on it.
Different doctors confict, its always good to get a second opinion, or third. Especially if what your doctor says is questionable. I'll see if i can find anymore info for you too.
And thanks LiamnEmma, I hope the cysts disappear too!
Maybe she'll tell them to get out of there!
It is awful to watch, being able to do nothing,but the best we can do is be strong, hope they understand, and be there for them,eh?
