Doctors believe that allowing children to 'drive' themselves into the operating room helps stabilize the child's mood and improves the safety of anesthesia. Since it started in October 2017, over 100 pediatric patients ranging from 1 to 6 years of age have taken advantage of this unique car service. [Photo: Xinhua]
