Abstract

Post-operative respiratory adverse events (AE) are frequent in children having adenotonsillectomry (AT) for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Many hospitals have a policy of routine admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) after surgery for children at highest risk. We aimed to determine the frequency and severity of post-operative AE in children admittted to ICU, to assess the appropriateness of this care plan.
