Book Chapter
Chapter 6 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It discusses the anesthetic management of children in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It notes that much of the uniqueness concerning anesthetic management of the pediatric patient in oral and maxillofacial surgery is focused on anesthesia delivered during intraoral procedures in which the patient is not intubated. It cites fundamental concepts that clearly demonstrate the increased risks associated with sedating the pediatric patient.
