Business, Health, People

Jerrold Lerman, MD, FRCPC, Attending Anesthesiologist at Women & Children’s Hospital, was a reviewer and requested to provide a commentary for an article recently published in The Lancet, entitled, “Risk Assessment Questionnaire Identifies Likelihood of Anesthetic Complications in Children Prior to Surgery.”

The Lancet is the world's leading general medical journal and specialty journals in Oncology, Neurology and Infectious Diseases.

As one of four reviewers for this article, Dr. Lerman was then requested to provide an objective comment on the clinical relevance of this study and implications for children under anesthesia.

The comment by Dr. Lerman for this article is as follows: “This study adds an interesting perspective to our understanding of perioperative respiratory adverse events in a cross-section of children undergoing surgery, although its external validity might be challenged and the reproducibility of several findings requires further research…Randomised trials are required to evaluate and validate the contributions of some subpopulations and management strategies to the frequency of perioperative respiratory adverse events.”

Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, a Kaleida Health facility and teaching hospital for the University at Buffalo School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, is the regional center for specialized pediatric, perinatal and obstetrical services in Western New York and beyond.
