Blindness secondary to retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) can be prevented in the majority of cases if the treatment is initiated within 72 h of diagnosis of “threshold disease”. To avoid delays and to facilitate optimal management, national guidelines have been issued.1 However, these guidelines do not offer clear guidance on anaesthesia for infants during treatment. This survey was conducted to evaluate the differences in anaesthetic management across regional neonatal units (NNUs) in the UK, problems associated with different modalities of anaesthesia and their impact on treatment.
