Operation Preparation

Dear General Practitioner,

Your patient has been registered for surgery with us.

The indication for technical preliminary examinations results from the joint recommendations of the DGAI, DGCH, DGIM mentioned below (Preoperative evaluation of adult patients before elective, non-cardiac surgery. Joint recommendation of the DGAI, DGCH and DGIM. Anesth Intensivmed 2017;58:349-364)

Please carry out the important steps below (for the operability assessment and the anaesthesia risk)! We need the findings at the latest 2 weeks before surgery or as soon as possible.

An interval of 6 weeks between the evaluation of adult patients before elective surgery should not be exceeded as a rule. The severity of the procedure or the age of the patient do not in themselves represent scientifically proven indications for the preoperative determination of laboratory parameters.

Please contact us if you do not wish to perform the preoperative examination yourself!

You can send us the documents by eMed via KV Connect, letter post or fax.
