Ive been in a neuro rotation for the past month...

I have not taken care of a moya moya pt...

Here is a case vignette for all of us to answer...the answer to me is still not concrete...Im just looking for some other thought processes to trigger me...the info the pt presents with is meant to be very limited...

A 4 year old boy comes in to the ER...
No anesthetic HX or illnesses...term child.

Mom says ..."im not sure why..but Im supposed to tell anesthesia to be notified whenever I have to bring my son to the ER...He has moya moya...

The young boy has cut the tip of his finger off by accident...There is no plan for a surgery...

What are you the anesthesia provider doing there?

Why do we need to be called to the ER? This is the question I need to answer...besides Airway...besides analgesia...

Id appreciate the help!

Ill let you know the answer...after I discuss with the preceptor...
