Preparing for Anesthesia

Good communication is key to ensuring patient peace of mind and enabling physicians to deliver the best possible patient care.

In most cases, the surgery center will call you the night before your scheduled procedure.  They will talk you through your process for arrival and provide an opportunity to ask questions. It is important for you to follow all of the instructions you receive from the surgery center or the staff you may have met with at a pre-operative appointment.  Be sure to ask questions or confirm instructions about  taking regular medications, eating and drinking or other steps you should take before your procedure.

Pre-op procedure exam and review of your medical history.

Once the staff has comfortably set you up in a pre-operative area, your anesthesiologist will review your medical history, including any allergies, medications and any pertinent laboratory studies. In addition, your anesthesiologist will perform a physical exam, performing a thorough check of your vital signs and evaluation of your overall health. He or she will then formulate your anesthetic plan and discuss what’s best and safest for you.

You are an integral member of the decision making process of your anesthetic plan, and you will have ample time to discuss the plan and ask any questions you may have.
