Hi Kennedy,
Do you mean what tests do they do at pre op, before surgery? If so, I can tell you what my son had. He had a lung function test (lots of breathing into tubes to measure the lungs and how they were working) Not sure if that's standard or if because he's asthmatic. He also had standard tests that were the same as would be performed at a physical, pulse, blood pressure, temp etc. He also had blood drawn, an MRI and x ray.
Are you scheduled for surgery?
Bethany
