[secret of operating room] why stop the operation after drinking a sip of milk?

“Aunt, come and pick you up to the operating room. Yesterday, I told you that after 10 p.m., I didn’t eat or drink water? ” The intern asked the patient. The above dialogue is similar, and the difference between three and five will occur in the hospital ward. The patient and family members were puzzled, why drink a sip of milk, the operation to stop? The patient is completely in accordance with the doctor’s instructions. What is the problem? As the saying goes, every industry has its own professional terms. However, doctors explain the condition to patients. If the whole process is in professional terms, it is not only a cloud of fog, but also a time-consuming and arduous delay in seeing a doctor. So when communicating with patients, medical staff should try to speak less professional terms, and even give examples with illustrations. The purpose is to make the patient understand the condition easily, relieve the anxiety, put down the doubts in his heart and receive better examination and treatment. The medical staff instruct the patient not to eat anything and drink water before operation, and it is called “no food and drink” in medical professional terms. The medical staff said to you, “no food and drink for 6 hours before operation”, and there may be many question marks in the patient’s head? It is generally said that “six hours before operation can not eat anything, nothing can be drunk”. Timid patients are basically strictly implemented, and it is not necessary to meet patients who are brave and thoughtful. Doctor said not to eat, I eat bread biscuit can always, do not let water, I drink milk drink can always! At first glance, it’s OK. It seems that there is a little bit of truth. But in fact, it’s not the fact that doctors are playing word games with patients, but because of the different cognitive biases between doctors and patients. So there will be an awkward situation in which doctors emphasize “can not eat and drink”, while patients are paying attention to “what can eat and drink”. Before the operation, many patients or families will assume that doctors don’t let them eat or drink, and they don’t think about it at all. You hungry stomach on the operating table, can you tolerate? What about hypoglycemia? Even if adults can barely carry, that child does not eat or drink hungry can do? It is not that doctors do not consider patients, but rather, doctors are for the safety of patients. Before operation, gastrointestinal preparation is an important link. Doctors and nurses usually instruct patients to fast and drink after 10 o’clock in the evening the day before the operation, and sometimes they will take laxatives to clean up the gastrointestinal tract. Objective to prevent nausea and vomiting, even reverse flow and aspiration during anesthesia or operation, which may cause suffocation or aspiration pneumonia. Under normal conditions, gastric acid in gastric juice was acidic, which had strong corrosion effect on bronchoalveolar mucosa. Before the operation, food in the stomach has not been digested. Once the reflux of gastric content is mistakenly inhaled, it is likely to cause aspiration pneumonia, which will lead to pulmonary dysfunction, respiratory failure and eventually suffocation and life-threatening. The international research shows that the probability of the backflow aspiration is still about 5% after 6-8 hours of fasting and drinking. So for some old and weak diseases, we should strictly abide by the will and do a good job of fasting and drinking before operation. So you dare to risk your life, stealing a bite before surgery? Patients are always nervous and anxious when they come to the hospital. They will not only treat every expression of the medical staff carefully, but also over interpret them sometimes. It is suggested that patients can write down the key questions to consult on paper before asking doctors, so that doctors can quickly and accurately answer questions and solve problems for you. As the rapid development of medical technology, and considering some special patients, is there a better and better time plan for the standards of preoperative fasting and drinking? According to the combination of the anesthesiology branch of the Chinese Medical Association and the American anesthesiologist Association, the reasonable time for fasting and drinking before operation is as follows: [/p > < p > there are still some doubts.
