Helpful Information for Patients

When an operation is scheduled under a general anaesthetic, the anaesthesiologist requires the patient to be fasted for at least 4 hours. An empty stomach is important during the induction of an anaesthetic to prevent any food debris from entering the patient's lungs when he is unconscious. Aspiration of stomach contents into the lungs can be fatal. This is why it is important that a patient should NOT eat before an operation.
