    Abstract

    A total of 200 outpatients in Aberdeen were invited to complete a simple preoperative anaesthetic assessment questionnaire. Of these patients 45-5% had significant medical histories and 59% were on concurrent drug therapy. The form was thought to be valuable for day-case anaesthetists and surgeons.
