Preparing For Your Procedure

Preparing For Your Procedure

Preparing For Your Procedure

  • Plan to arrive 45 minutes prior to procedure time.
  • If your procedure is with sedation, you must be accompanied by a responsible driver to take you home and stay with you for 24 hours. ASSC will not discharge patients with solely Uber or taxi transportation. 
  • Leave all valuables and jewelry at home.
  • Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing.
  • For procedures scheduled with sedation, no food or drink, including water, 8 hours prior to procedure. A small sip of water is permitted with medication. 
  • Avoid smoking, gum chewing, and hard candies the day of your procedure. 
  • On procedure day, take all routine morning medications except injectable diabetic medications. 
  • If you are on blood thinners, i.e., Aspirin, Coumadin, Xarelto® or Plavix, please consult your prescribing physician for specific instructions on holding this medication prior to your procedure.
