Özet

Objective: Although parental presence during anesthesia induction is suggested to diminish operative stress level in children, there have been conflicting results about this strategy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of maternal presence during induction on operative stress level in children who had tonsillectomy and/or adenoidectomy by determining the salivary cortisol levels.
