In this editorial, the authors suggest broadening the mandate of pediatric anesthesiologists to examine all aspects of pediatric care and determine ways that it can be improved. As the specialty that cares for children in the operating room, intensive care units, and pain clinics, anesthesiologists are uniquely positioned to take on the challenge of determining which factors are most important in assuring optimal care for patients.
- Prenatal Exposure to General Anesthesia and Childhood Behavioral Deficit
- Increasing the interval between repeated anesthetic exposures reduces long‐lasting synaptic changes in late post‐natal mice
- Tau Contributes to Sevoflurane-induced Neurocognitive Impairment in Neonatal Mice
- Neonatal exposure to sevoflurane expands the window of vulnerability to adverse effects of subsequent exposure to sevoflurane and alters hippocampal morphology via decitabine-sensitive mechanisms
