Pre-op testing, what's involved?

Can anyone tell me what to expect in terms of the pre-op tests? What do they do, and what does the patient have to undergo?

For me it was an electrocardiogram, meeting with the anesthesiologist who will ask you questions, bariatric nurse, and a pre-op doctor who will take you blood pressure and ask you some medical information. At the end of it all, i had to go see the bariatric nutritionist to get the optifast. It's a couple of hours in total and well organized. (Now all i'm missing is a surgery date! :)
Again, this was my experience last month. I hope this answers your question!
