REGIONAL ANAESTHESIA IN PAEDIATRICS

  Increased use of regional anaesthesia in infants, children, and adolescents has significantly improved the scope of paediatric pain management. Regional anaesthesia is generally accepted as an integral component of postoperative pain relief in paediatric patients.  Several regional anaesthetic techniques are also playing emerging roles in managing chronic paediatric pain syndromes. Performance of regional anaesthesia can be safely and effectively applied to paediatric patients, and these techniques are becoming increasingly popular. Regional anaesthetic techniques are commonly performed in paediatric patients; large prospective databases and expert opinion have demonstrated the ability to safely perform regional anaesthesia in children with minimal risk of neurological damage. The use of ultrasound guidance and its incorporation into the practice of regional anaesthesia has dramatically improved routine paediatric perioperative care.
