Preop assessment tool
PreOpEval is a preop app to help guide how to evaluate patients for non-cardiac surgery. The guidelines are from the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association and the American College of Chest Physicians most recent recommendations. The app has a cardiac evaluation algorithm to help users decide what a patient’s pre op risk is prior to surgery as well as give guidance regarding key medications, test to order and timing of surgery after cardiac events. While these guidelines are accepted by the ACC/AHA/ACCP it does not mean that is what your local anesthesiologist will follow. Overall a useful tool for residents/students/ancillary staff to help think about what labs need to be ordered, which patients need further workup and how to handle patients on particular medicines.
