Recovering from Surgery

By The Numbers

Benefits for Patients

ClearFast can curb both preoperative hunger and thirst. It clears the stomach in 60 to 90 minutes after ingestion, reduces residual gastric volume and acidity, and helps reduce postoperative insulin resistance.

Proven through clinical studies and in actual use, ClearFast provides many significant benefits for pre-surgical patients, including:

  • Decreases the hunger, thirst, and nausea typically associated with fasting prior to surgery
  • Decreases the stress on patients by eliminating starvation resulting from NPO
  • Decreases muscle breakdown by increasing glucose uptake through the enhanced insulin sensitivity associated with preoperative complex carbohydrates loading
  • Helps decrease post-surgical infection rates
  • Helps decrease patient length of stay in the hospital (LOS)
  • Reduces Post-Operative Nausea and Vomiting (PONV)
Benefits for Hospitals

By prescribing ClearFast to surgical patients, you are not only increasing the standard of care you provide but the standard of care your hospital or facility provides. ClearFast provides many benefits for healthcare institutions, including:

  • Helping them to comply with Enhanced Recovery Protocols
  • Reducing the number of post-operative readmits
  • Shortening patient LOS
  • Reducing cost of care
  • Reducing postoperative complications (such as post-operative Insulin Resistance)
  • Reducing the rates of postoperative infections
  • Increasing patient comfort
  • Increasing patient satisfaction
  • Helping to improve HCAHPS scores

“As the Medical Director of a large and busy OPSC, the creator of ClearFast was focused on alleviating physical manifestations of the pre-op fast including hunger, thirst, nausea, headache, anxiety and general discomfort as well as on the significant economic consequences of patients violating that fast. While a fast from solids is rational, the prohibition of any clear calorie-rich fluids is counter-intuitive.”
