Anaesthesiological management of the paediatric patient in the catheterisation laboratory

Giuseppe Isgrò, Marco Ranucci

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The widespread use of therapeutic cardiac catheterisation in the management of congenital heart disease requires the presence of a trained paediatric cardiac anaesthesiologist with the ability to provide both safe and consistent sedation or general anaesthesia to paediatric cardiac patients. Specific knowledge of the pathophysiology of congenital cardiac lesions and the clinical implications of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are essential.
