Pre-Anesthetic Bloodwork

We recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork before every anesthetic procedure. We will take a blood sample and perform a CBC (complete blood count) and a Chemistry profile (blood chemistry looking at electrolytes, clotting, white counts, etc.). For patients over 7 years old, we would add an ECG to our blood panel.

These tests let us assess whether any underlying conditions would be aggravated by an anesthetic procedure.
