Faculty Published for Research on Alternatives to General Anesthesia for Children
Anesthesiology researchers, Dr. Kumar Belani and Dr. David Beebe, were recently published in the June 2017 issue of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. Their work was titled "Tympanostomy Tube Placement in Children Using a Single-Pass Tool with Moderate Sedation".
This article explores alternative methods to use of general anesthesia for children. Their work demonstrates the feasibility of completing tympanostomy tube placement under moderate sedation instead of under general anesthesia. This alternative method now offers a choice for parents and physicians.
Congratulations, Dr. Belani and Dr. Beebe, for this publication!
