Hello. Good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Surgery on children has a very broad understanding, such as surgery for head organs such as hydrocephalus surgery (head that is enlarged because it contains fluid), leakage surgery on the heart, gastrointestinal surgery, cleft lip surgery, and others.
Operations performed on children are mostly related to abnormal conditions since birth or what is called a congenital disease, so that the operations carried out aim to improve the condition of organs that are not like in general people so that it is expected that improvements in organ function can be achieved to the maximum.
The use of the hose in the operation will be very broad, as well as during the operation there is a hose that will be used for the total anesthesia procedure to maintain the patient's airway so that it still gets enough oxygen even in unconscious conditions, in addition it can also be used a hose used for nutrition especially in patients who have difficulty swallowing or disturbed consciousness, and there is also a tube used to channel fluid from the brain to the abdomen in the case of hydrocephalus.
Should be related to the surgical procedure, it is discussed in advance with the doctor in full procedure, optimal conditions that need to be prepared during preparation for surgery, a history of pain that the patient has experienced, a history of allergies the patient has, and a family history of illness. In addition, the doctor will examine the overall condition of the patient whether in optimal condition for surgery. For equipment that will be used especially those that will settle in the patient's body can be discussed with doctors and health workers, in general the doctors will explain the whole operating procedure, give consideration of the benefits and risks and consent of the patient or family to sign the approval of the operating procedure.
Related operations in children can be further consulted with pediatric surgeons.
Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
