Pre-Op (Surgery) Bloodwork Panel
Pre-Op (Surgery) Bloodwork Panel (Labcorp)
This testing panel includes several lab tests that are often taken prior to undergoing surgery. Blood work is often performed prior to an operation to help ensure that a person is healthy enough to undergo surgery and avoid any potential complications which may arise. While the tests in this package are common pre-op requirements, it is important to check with your doctor or surgeon to ensure which tests are appropriate for you. Not all surgeries will have the same pre-op requirements.
The Pre-Op Testing Panel Includes:
- Complete Blood Count (CBC): A CBC provides a number of measurements including red blood cells (RBC), white blood cells (WBC), hemoglobin, and hematocrit. These tests can help to ensure you are not anemic and do not have any infections. A CBC is often ordered after surgery as well.
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): A CMP measures blood sugar, electrolytes, and values related to liver and kidney function. These are all important for assessing if a person has any health issues that may complicate their surgery or their ability to recover.
- Prothrombin Time (PT INR) and Partial Thromboplastin Time (PTT): These tests evaluate how long it takes your blood to clot. This can help ensure you do not have any bleeding disorders which could be dangerous during and after surgery.
Pre-op testing is normally ordered around one month before surgery. However. the optimal time to get pre-surgery bloodwork done should be determined by your doctor.
Additional tests may be necessary as determined by your doctor or specialist. Women are sometimes required to take a pregnancy blood test. A Complete Urinalysis that helps to evaluate kidney function and look for infections is also common. Additional pre-op surgery panels including one that includes an HIV test, and one with both HIV and pregnancy testing are also available.
The turnaround for these tests is typically 1 business day.
