QUESTION: Where do I find the rule of tens?
The "Rule of Tens" is a conventional rule of thumb used by most surgeons to determine a baby's readiness for surgery. It's ten weeks of age, ten pounds in weight and ten grams of hemoglobin in the blood. When a child reaches all three criteria, whatever surgical risks there are will be greatly minimized.
