The objectives of the preanesthetic evaluation include establishing rapport, becoming familiar with the patient's surgical illness and coexisting medical conditions, medically optimizing the patient's comorbidities, developing a management strategy for perioperative anesthetic care, and obtaining informed consent for the anesthetic plan. The consultation is then detailed in the patient's medical record and concludes with the anesthetic options, including attendant risks and benefits of discussed options. The overall goals of the preoperative assessment are to reduce perioperative morbidity and mortality and to assuage patient anxiety.
