K. Tsvetanova | S. Tsvetkova | M. Atanasova | E. Odiseeva
Abstract: Summary Autism is a disease of the brain. It affects 6 in every 1000 children from all races, ethnical and social groups. Most of the physicians say it is more of a condition, rather than a disease. Children who suffer from autism have problems with communication and lack social skills. This is why they have to be under anesthesia when various medical manipulations or operations are performed. Prior to all those interventions are necessary not only consultations with pediatrician, anesthesiologists and other specialists but also close collaboration with psychologists who know the specific character of this condition.
