Pediatric anesthesiology Stockholm
The research group “Stockholm-Pediatric Anesthesia” is performing research with regards to the following areas related to pediatric anesthesia and intensive care: regional anesthesia and postoperative pain relief, pharmacology with a focus on the various uses of alpha-2 agonists, monitoring of respiration and circulation by use of capnodynamics, neonatal anesthesia and preoperative information and premedication in association with pediatric anesthesia.
