Historical perspective. Introduction The aim of this guidance is to standardise the care of the ‘Preoperative Patient’ throughout the trust with regard to Preoperative Fasting and Drug Administration. Guidelines for Preoperative Fasting and the Use of Pharma-cologic Agents to Reduce the Risk of Pulmonary Aspiration were adopted by the ASA in 1998 and published in 1999. It is widely recognised that prolonged fasting for elective surgery in both children and adults serves no purpose, adversely affects patient well-being and can be detrimental. Prolonged fasting is associated with an increased incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting 47.
