It is VERY IMPORTANT on the day of surgery, that the patient has an empty stomach.  If anything has been put into the patient's mouth or stomach, the surgery may be cancelled to ensure the safety of the patient. Even chewing gum will cause the cancellation of surgery. DO NOT let the patient eat or drink ANYTHING on the day of surgery, unless otherwise directed by anesthesia.  Please tell someone if you think the patient has eaten or drank anything on the day of surgery.  If there is food or liquid in the stomach at the time of surgery, there is a chance the patient could choke while under anesthesia.

If the patient is on any medications that may cause bleeding be sure to tell your doctor.  Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents are  the most common medications which can cause bleeding.  If possible it should be discontinued 10 days prior to surgery.
