Why can’t I eat before my anaesthetic ?
Food in your stomach might passively come up your gullet and pass down into your lungs resulting in lung damage.
Will anyone be with me while I’m asleep ?
I will be present for the complete duration of your anaesthetic until you reach the recovery area.
Why do I have to remove my tongue stud ?
Metal instruments may be passed over your tongue while you are asleep and tongue studs catch and get in the way.
