Preparation Before Doing The TEE Procedure?
good afternoon, permission to ask. For TEE procedures other than fasting is there anything else to do? then for women who are still menstruating, can still be in TEE. thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.
TEE procedure is a heart ultrasound procedure to determine the function and work of the heart by using a device that is inserted through the throat.
Things to do before undergoing the TEE procedure include:
1. Fasting up to 1 hour after the surgical procedure
2. Remove all metal materials including dentures
3. Then the doctor will anesthetize through the throat so that there is no gag reflex and no pain when inserted the tool
to find out more about TEE you should consult directly through a cardiologist.
for menstrual patients, as long as they are in good health, no anemia or no other pain complaints, it is actually not a contraindication to the action, so it will most likely still be done, but before the action is certain the doctor who performs the action will carry out several checks to make sure you are in a state that is TEE can be done. So it is very important before the action is performed, you should consult with a cardiologist who will perform the action.
thus hopefully useful
