Men over 40 and women over 60 years old may have to perform an ECG.Day of surgery
You should stay sober on the eve of anesthesia from 00:00 am, ie. you should not drink more, eat anything and not smoking. If you become ill shortly, I ask you to give it your doctor immediately known practice.On the day of surgery
