An attending nurse will lead you to the pre-operative room, where you will be prepared for your surgery. He or she will likely take vital statistics, such as temperature, blood pressure, patient weight, as well as perform an ECG and check patient ears, nose and throat passages. He or she will review key questions and information along with your doctor or surgeon. You will then be changed into a patient gown, slippers and head cover. Depending upon your needs, you may either take oral or intravenous sedation and other necessary medications.
A nurse will assess you one last time, before you are brought into the operating arena. Once under anesthesia, you will be prepared for your specific procedure. Then, your lead surgeon, attending nurses and other medical technicians will work together to insure your successful surgical operation.
