The free PreOpGuide provides an evidence-based, pre-operative anesthesia testing guide for medical professionals who order or administer pre-operative testing. Clinicians answer questions about the patient’s surgical procedure and current medical condition and the app provides a list of the recommended tests necessary prior to surgery. This easy to use clinical support tool helps ensure patients are properly prepared for surgery and reduces or eliminates unnecessary testing, unnecessary testing delays, surgery delays and cancellations, which all result in a reduction in costs to the patient and hospital.
Clinicians who will benefit from PreOpGuide include: hospitalists, anesthesiologists, general practitioners, surgeons, nurse practitioners, emergency medicine physicians and physician assistants.
This app is based on the standards of pre-operative testing established by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Clinicians can print directly from the app.
