Regarding neonatal circumcision, which of the following is true:
|A||It should be done without anaesthesia, as it is hazardous to give anaesthesia|
|B||It should be done without anaesthesia, as neonates do not perceive pain as adults|
|C||It should be done under local anaesthesia only|
|D||General anaesthesia should be given to neonate for circumcision as they also feel pain as adults|
General anaesthesia should be given to neonate for circumcision as they also feel pain as adults
a. As it was assumed earlier that children's pain perception is very less as compared to adults but now it has been proven that children feel equal pain as compared to adults so circumcision here should be performed under general anaesthesia.
b. Circumcision under local anaesthesia will not be possible as neonate will not allow to give injection and it will keep on moving continuously during surgery hampering the procedure.
