Pre Anesthesia Testing

Good morning all! I am scheduled for MVD on July 9 for GN. The day before I will be going in for a brain MRI and pre anesthesia testing. Can anyone tell me what to expect? I've had MRI's done in the past, but I have no idea what the pre anesthesia testing involves. Thanks!

Hi RueAnn,

Regarding pre anaesthia testing I am in uk and prior to any surgery here patient meets with anaesthetist to discuss any previous problems with anaesthesia and bloods are checked, B.P., Pulse, Temp checked ECG done and anaesthetist listens to lungs to insure no breathing problems will be associated with anaesthetic. If any doubt chest xray will be done prior to operation. At this point you should ensure any allergies are noted. Hope this helps you some and good luck with the operation.
