The Fast, Feed and Wrap Project
A team of anaesthetic and radiology staff were brought together to reduce the number of general anaesthetics given to babies needing interventional radiology procedures.
By using precisely timed fasting, feeding, swaddling and deep physiological sleep with ultrasound guidance and local anaesthetic cream, the need for general anaesthesia in many babies was eliminated.
This greatly reduced the risks of anaesthesia for some of our smallest and most fragile patients.
