New Study: Anesthesia is Safe for Young Children Who Have Undergone Surgery

  1. 1. Mason Mandy New Study: Anesthesia is Safe for Young Children Who Have Undergone Surgery masonmandy.net
  2. 2. A new study recently conducted by Medical Express examines the various ways in which general anesthesia affects children under the age of 3. As the first three years of a child’s life are absolutely critical when it comes to brain development, there has been much debate as to if anesthesia actually poses a cognitive threat or risk to these young children.
  3. 3. This study, which was conducted by lead researchers at both Columbia University and NY Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital was on attempting to better understand if general anesthesia negatively impacted various stages of early childhood development such as memory, attention, etc. Since limited medical studies confirmed anesthesia’s detriment, researchers decided to evaluate whether or not this was the case among young children.
  4. 4. A primary concern that drove this research study was the fact professionals in the greater pediatric field were wary if anesthetic agents negatively affected developing neurosystems.
  5. 5. Throughout this study, researchers analyzed findings from 105 healthy children who had previously undergone inguinal hernia surgery. Researchers then examined the IQ scores in areas such as processing speed and executive function, and compared these results with those of healthy children in the same age bracket (anywhere from age 8 to 15).
  6. 6. According to Guohua Li, DrPH, MD, professor of epidemiology at Columbia, the findings from this comprehensive study clearly point to the fact that parents should not be hesitant to have their children undergo procedures or surgeries that require general anesthesia.
  7. 7. Dr. Sun, a lead researcher in this study confirms that there were no differences in developing capabilities between both groups of children. But, Dr. Sun also states that the group of children exposed to general anesthesia required more clinical evaluation, due to signs of internalizing behavior.
  8. 8. While the study uncovered salient findings within the field of pediatrics, there are still several unanswered questions that need to be explored in greater detail when researchers revisit this topic again. With the majority of the informants in the study consisted of young boys, the researchers were thus unable to better understand how girls are affected by anesthesia under 3 years old.
  9. 9. In addition, medical professionals would also need to further explore the various effects of children who have had repeated or prolonged exposure to anesthesia, as well as children with more serious medical conditions. To read more about various findings in this study, please take a look at the Journal of the American Medical Association.
