Anesthesia and its Effects on Infants & Childhood Development

  • The effects of the use of anesthesia on infants and young children have been a concern for doctors and parents for many years. Each year, millions of patients are exposed to anesthesia during surgery, and about a half a million of those patients are children under the age of three. In the past, studies have been done on young monkeys and other animals that showed anesthetics may kill brain cells, affect memory, and cause behavioral problems. However, since these were animals and not children, these studies offered no definitive results.
