Brief description Respiratory problems account for more than three quarters of all critical incidents and a third of all cardiac arrests in healthy children undergoing anaesthesia for surgical procedures. It is therefore vital to identify high risk children early to be able to adapt the anaesthesia regimen accordingly. This series of studies will study new prediction and prevention strategies to minimise respiratory problems and therefore improve the safety for our children when undergoing anaesthesia.
