ADHD After Anaesthesia

A doctor describes a risk analysis of ADHD following anaesthesia for surgery in young children, from an epidemiodogical, observational study. They found a correlation with two or more exposures to anaesthesia, but prudently don’t point to any one cause. Good video, with an excellent explanation for the public. Reported in the new free journal article Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder After Early Exposure to Procedures Requiring General Anesthesia, Sprung et al, Mayo Clinic Proceedings Feb. 2012.
