FastCare, a Miami Beach Urgent Care center, is now offering preoperative physicals for patients with upcoming surgeries.
The purpose of a preoperative assessment is to determine if a surgical procedure poses any threats to a patient's well-being and, if so, make necessary safety preparations to improve the patient's chances for a successful surgical outcome.
Depending on the type of surgery scheduled, Fastcare’s doctors will determine the type of tests which need to be performed. Two specific areas tested are cardiac and respiratory.
Many preoperative physicals involve reviewing a patient's medical background such as; if they are allergic to anything and if they have had any past operations.
The type of surgery determines when a preoperative physical needs to be completed. Some examinations need to be scheduled weeks in advance while others can be done the day before the patient is scheduled for surgery.
When a patient has a preoperative physical, the urgent care Miami staff ensures the patient is also mentally prepared for their operation.
During an examination, patients are welcome to ask questions regarding the procedure. Before the examination is finished, patients should be well aware of what their procedure will entail, how much pain they may feel, how to manage pain, and have an estimated recovery time-frame.
Patients and families who are prepared psychologically tend to feel more confident going into surgery.
