Preparing kids for surgery and taking the scary out of anesthesia–the magic air!™


Did your grown-up say you need to have surgery?

That's pretty big news for a kid!

So, what is anesthesia?

It’s the go-to-sleep medicine.

It’s like magic air that makes you not feel or remember any of the surgery.

Then, when surgery is over, you’ll wake up!

But, don't worry!

You probably aren't too sure about this surgery thing.

That's why I made you this checklist, with ten steps that are just your size!

Then, you'll be ready.
