  • Do drink plenty of water the day before your procedure.
  • Make sure you have someone to drive you home the day of your procedure. You will not be allowed to drive after receiving an anesthetic.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing so that we may be able to easily apply cardiac monitors as well as please do not wear dark fingernail polish as it may interfere with the monitors.
