If Tests Are Required Before Surgery
Your doctor may order some tests before your surgery at Central DuPage Hospital, such as blood, lab tests, EKG or chest x-ray.
One of our experienced pre-admission nurses will call to obtain your detailed health history. It should take somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. Please have a list of your medications readily available and how often you taken them, also include any over the counter drugs you routinely take. If you don’t have a list , gather your medicine containers and we’ll have you read the labels to the nurse.
After this phone interview, you may be given instructions for next steps. Based on your health history, required testing will be scheduled at a location convenient for you. Additional medical follow-up or testing may be needed after the surgeon and anesthesiologist have reviewed your test results and health history.
