Description

A discussion on pre operative assesment and patient evaluation for patients undergoing both elective and emergency surgical procedures under general anaesthesia with an aim at improving clinical outcomes and avoid complications that may arisethat are GA related.


Objectives

The purpose of a preoperative evaluation is not to “clear” patients for elective surgery, but rather to evaluate and, if necessary, implement measures to prepare higher risk patients for surgery. Pre-operative outpatient medical evaluation can decrease the length of hospital stay as well as minimize postponed or cancelled surgeries
