Anaesthesia for Gastroenterology
Paediatric gastrointestinal endoscopy (GIE) is a procedure for diagnosis and treatment of GI abnormalities. It can be performed without sedation, with intravenous sedation or with general anaesthesia. A paediatric anesthesiologist—a doctor who specializes in anaesthesia for children will give the medications that will make your child sleep during the test. Under general anaesthesia, your child will not feel any pain or have any memory of the test.
