The purpose of the study is to examine if an education program of the medical teams can help implementation of of NPO (nothing-per-os)orders in children before anesthesia for ambulatory medical interventions under anesthesia and decrease unnecessary long fasting. We shall ask parents of such children to fill in a questionnaire regarding pre-anesthesia fasting and regular eating and drinking habits. Thereafter, all medical teams involved with the administration of NPO orders will receive an educational program to explain and implement the NPO orders as are recommended by the American Society of Anesthesiologists. We will examine if the educational program was successful in reducing unnecessary long period of fasting, and if such a program is not associated with increased rate of delay of cases.

We propose to evaluate a preoperative education of the patient and a new surgical technique (the mini-invasive THR) that could reduce the time to achieve functional independence. The prim...
Preoperative fasting in children can cause anxiety, which may ultimately lead to postoperative emergence delirium. However, no data are available whether duration of preoperative fasting correlates wi...
Considering the practice of preoperative fasting based on observations on the gastric emptying delay after induction and the time of this fast is closely linked to organic response to trauma, arise th...
Standard preoperative education for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has been shown to have no effect on postoperative outcomes. This may be because such education programs fail to educate patients about...
Adequate preoperative fasting is critical in preventing pulmonary aspiration of gastric content. We proposed to study the sonographic gastric content dynamics after the ingestion of liquid or solid fo...

An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to absent or deficient fructose-1,6-diphosphatase activity. Gluconeogenesis is impaired, resulting in accumulation of gluconeogenic precursors (e.g., amino acids, lactate, ketones) and manifested as hypoglycemia, ketosis, and lactic acidosis. Episodes in the newborn infant are often lethal. Later episodes are often brought on by fasting and febrile infections. As patients age through early childhood, tolerance to fasting improves and development becomes normal.
