Ambulatory Anesthesia Aspects for Tonsillectomy and Abrasion in Children

Preoperative evaluation should identify increased bleeding risk, potential airway problems, ongoing infection and symptoms of OSA. IV propofol is most often used for anesthetic induction, although inhalational sevoflurane is a valid alternative. LMA or endotracheal tube may both be used safely and effectively; the choice will depend upon the routine and experience of the team. Paracetamol and NSAIDs are useful baseline medication for nonopioid multimodal postoperative pain treatment and prophylaxis. Similar with local anesthesia infiltration and dexamethasone medication, although somewhat more disputed.
