Preparing for test

To prepare for a pre-operative blood test, consider the following steps:

  1. Follow Fasting Instructions: In some cases, you may be required to fast for a certain period before the blood test. This typically involves abstaining from food and beverages, except water, for a specific duration, usually 8 to 12 hours before the test. Follow any fasting instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
  2. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water before your blood test unless instructed otherwise by your healthcare provider. Staying hydrated can make it easier for the phlebotomist to locate your veins and collect blood samples.
  3. Review Medication Instructions: Inform your healthcare provider about any medications, supplements, or herbal remedies you are currently taking. Some medications may need to be temporarily stopped or adjusted before the blood test to ensure accurate results. Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions regarding medication use before the test.
  4. Dress Comfortably: Wear loose-fitting clothing with sleeves that can be easily rolled up to allow access to your arms for blood collection. This will make the process more comfortable for you and the phlebotomist.
  5. Relax and Stay Calm: If you feel anxious or nervous about the blood test, try to relax and stay calm. Deep breathing exercises or listening to calming music can help alleviate anxiety. Inform the phlebotomist if you have a fear of needles or if you have experienced fainting or dizziness during blood draws in the past.
  6. Bring Necessary Documents: Bring any required documents, such as your identification card, insurance information, or pre-operative paperwork, to your appointment. This will ensure a smooth check-in process and help expedite the blood test procedure.
  7. Communicate Any Concerns: If you have any questions or concerns about the blood test, don’t hesitate to communicate them with your healthcare provider or the phlebotomist. They can provide additional information and address any worries you may have.

During the test

Depending on your medical history and the type of surgery you will undergo, you may need to undergo various laboratory tests, such as blood tests, urine tests, and resting ECGs to assess your organ function and overall health.

Overall, the pre-operative assessment is designed to ensure that you are medically optimised for surgery, minimize the risk of complications, and provide you with the necessary information and support to undergo a successful surgical procedure.
