Created by a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist/Anesthesiologist (CRNA) with almost 11 years of experience. Over that time, Trish learned the most ideal ways to approach children of all ages. Helping children understand a few essential pieces allows them to participate and reduce their anxiety on the day of their surgery. Age appropriate adventures help your child relate anesthesia to something they already understand. These books will also help parents who struggle to find the best way to teach their children about anesthesia.
