Nil by mouth: a misleading statement.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  17867424     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Preoperative fasting is universally accepted as a beneficial practice to reduce the risk of pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents during the induction of general anaesthesia. What is less clear for many junior doctors and nurses is the administration of oral medication during the fasting period. This study aims to highlight the subjective understanding of the statement, 'nil by mouth' with regard to drug administration.
