Brief Summary:
The investigators are concerned about anesthetizing obese children in outpatient locations in case they need prolonged stay, increased respiratory interventions, or need for post-operative narcotics. The investigators will be using a screening guideline to help us determine the higher risk child based on BMI and co-morbid conditions. The investigators will also be doing a retrospective chart review of 300 patients with BMI 95% and looking at various factors during the operative and post-operative period.
