Department of Pediatric Surgery has several areas:
✅ Waiting area during pediatric surgical operations.
This area adjacent to surgical wards is designed for waiting during pediatric surgical operations. There is also a coffee and a gift shops.
At the end of the surgery, the surgeon visits you in this area and reports on operation and features of further recovery of a child.
Parents are given an opportunity to visit their child as soon as possible after surgery.
✅ Anaesthetic room
If you have met only adult surgery, you probably have never heard of an anaesthesia room, as there are no such rooms for adults. This is a room where you can be with your child when anaesthesiologist starts administering anesthesia.
When it’s a time to start surger, parents and child are invited to anaesthesia room where nurses check child’s condition. There you will also meet a team of anesthetists who care for your child in surgery room. Previously, anesthetist cross checks condition of child’s health and possible allergic reactions to medications, and also answers any of your questions./p>
Most children are afraid of injections, so we induce anesthesia by using anesthetic gas, which is given by inhalation. If the child is very small, up to 7-8 months, anesthesia usually begins in the operating room. Older patients “fall asleep” in anaesthesia room. Usually this happens in parents’ hands, therefore that’s why we have our wheelchairs. When your child falls asleep, he or she is brought or transported with a surgical transport to the operating room. At this time, parents move to waiting area.
✅ Operating room
Your child will sleep throughout the operation. Together, surgeons, nurses and anesthetists will provide your child with competent and coordinated care.
✅ Post-operative ward
Postoperative ward is also called anesthesia recovery unit. At the end of operation, your child needs constant supervision until the body’s condition stabilizes and the side effects of anesthesia begin to disappear. We know that you’ll want to see your child, and child will want to see you. We will invite you to postoperative ward as soon as possible, more quickly than we usually invite relatives to postoperative ward for adults.
Stay in a postoperative ward can last from 15 minutes to several hours, depending on complexity of operation. When your child is ready, he or she will either be discharged and sent home with you, or taken to its ward. Children required to stay in intensive care unit will be transferred there immediately from operating room.
