Research points that the prevention and control of anxiety and stress before a child surgery are extremely useful because it can lead to a reduction of pain, minor postoperative complications and a better postoperative recovery of affected children.

Thanks to the solidarity of ByHours users, an accompaniment to surgery and during induction of anaesthesia will be held to 68 children in Sant Joan de Déu Althaïa Hospital of Manresa for 13 weeks. In addition, they also help relatives affected by the suffering of the minor, and health personnel.
