Abstract

A 1-year-old, 9-kg boy is scheduled for repair of orbital hypertelorism for Apert’s syndrome. He appears congested but afebrile, with a blood pressure of 92/55 mmHg, pulse 120 bpm, respiration 32/min, and temperature 37°C. Hematocrit is 33%. He is on no medications, and his parents report that he is terribly afraid of doctors after coming to the craniofacial clinic so often. He has never had any previous surgery.
