Abstract

As physicians, we are often requested to assess a patient prior to procedure. The purpose of a preoperative evaluation is to evaluate and to identify high risk patients before surgery. Better preparedness pre-operatively helps in faster recovery. It is important that the physician understand the risks associated with the planned surgery and should be able to relate these risks to the patient’s underlying acute and chronic medical problems.
