ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Although, anaesthesiologists may feel free to provide anaesthesia care in an infrastructural-rich scenario of operating room they are coming out from that secured environment to cater their services to ever-expanding diagnostic and interventional domain. It is quite challenging to provide anaesthesia care in this arena where environment, equipment and staff are often not sufficient from logistic point of view. The peculiarities of environment, limitations regarding human resource, equipment and ancillary facilities should be borne in mind. Certainly, the safety for the paediatric patients increases when anaesthesiologists are involved for anaesthesia care. However, conventional anaesthesiologists should acquire practical experience from seniors and experts in this field to tackle these situations. Training under supervision, being armoured with proper equipment and drugs, along with adequate backup facilities are of paramount important matters. In this narrative review, mostly consensus views have been presented about how to provide safe anaesthesia care for this special population. Some grey areas are there about which evidence is growing.
