The follow up bill to Caleb's Law, AB224, sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, CA, is going to be heard and voted on by the California State Senate Committee on Business, Professions, and Economic Development this June 2017. This critical bill will actually change the way anesthesia is done in dental offices and it will immediately make it safer for children undergoing sedation and anesthesia. The most important provision in this bill is banning the operator-anesthetist model of care for children aged 6 and under during general anesthesia.
