Perioperative Medication Management
The management of a patient’s home medication regimen around a surgical procedure is an essential component of perioperative medicine. Clinicians must consider which routine medications might cause harm versus which are essential to controlling the underlying medical condition(s) during the perioperative period. This chapter provides guidance for clinicians in this risk–benefit assessment while acknowledging that there is a general lack of outcome data about routine medication management in the perioperative setting.
