Background & Aims: Anxiety and emergence agitation are major challenges for anesthesiologists in pediatric anesthesia. Parental presence during induction of anesthesia can be used to treat pre-induction anxiety and emergence agitation in children. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of mother presence during induction of anesthesia on emergence of agitation after strabismus surgery
Materials & Methods: In this prospective randomized clinical trial, 40 candidates for strabismus surgery aged 2-7 years were divided into study and control group. Pain and sedation were assessed in the post-anesthesia care unit using FACEs pain rating scale and Ramsay sedation scale, respectively.
Results: Patients in the study group had significantly higher Ramsay sedation scores compared with the control group (2.1±.7 vs. 1.2±.4; p=0.04). There was no statistically significant difference regarding postoperative FACES in pain rating scale among two study groups.
Conclusion: Parental presence during induction of anesthesia can reduce emergence behavior and agitation in selected children undergoing general anesthesia.
