PMID:  10695099     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In an earlier article in this journal (June 1999) we discussed the risk that the presence of cardiac disease poses to patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. We outlined factors in the patient's medical history, examination findings and the value of various tests in arriving at an overall assessment of risk for any given patient. In this article we concentrate on the management of these patients as they undergo surgery itself. We shall consider what measures may usefully be employed in order to minimise the risk of an adverse cardiac event occurring in the perioperative period.
