The day of surgery can be extremely stressful, starving and dehydrating your body is no way to ease the mind before your procedure
Most patients experience intense hunger while in the fasting window before surgery
Increased Infection Risk
Starving before surgery means high blood sugars; add a surgical wound and you are especially prone to infection
Nausea & Vomiting
Patients often experience nausea, or vomit after surgery due to starvation & dehydration combined with anesthesia
Acids in the Stomach
Starving yourself actually does not empty your stomach…dangerous stomach acids collect in your stomach as a result of starvation and dehydration
Patients who drink ClearFast before anesthesia can be less anxious and 5 times more comfortable
Nourished & Hydrated
ClearFast is a delicious carb rich beverage that hydrates with electrolytes and nourishes with just the right amount of calories to ease hunger
Reduced Infection Risk
Drinking ClearFast before surgery can stabilize blood sugars, greatly reducing the risk of infection after surgery (returning to the hospital)
When ClearFast is taken two hours before surgery, the stomach absorbs it along with potentially dangerous stomach acids.
Nausea and vomiting after anesthesia is greatly reduced when you hydrate and nourish beforehand.
