Recently some good news have come from a study that was run at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital to confirm the risks of children without any serious heart or lung complications dying from anaesthesia.
The study revealed that maximum one in 10,000 cases has been noticed with similar risks.
The above findings came after examining 100,000+ anaesthetics that were given to almost 56,000 children since July 2003 until August 2008. It was noticed from the reports that the number of anaesthesia-related deaths among all the studied cases was 10, in which pre-existing medical conditions were also considered as a significant factor.
Among 10, five died children were suffering from abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs.
Study leader Dr. Ben van der Griend, now based at Christchurch Hospital, said that the last found is still little accurate on anaesthesia-related deaths that have occurred till now.
"Studies of this kind are important because they help doctors to identify high-risk patients, in this case children with pulmonary hypertension or heart disease, and they can then allocate appropriate resources and training to these cases," he said.
He further cleared that the findings of the study will help parents make better choices while choosing anaesthesia for their children suffering from complex medical conditions. Moreover, this will also ensure safety to children’s health.
