Coronary artery bypass operations are common
surgeries that help patients with heart
conditions, lessen their symptoms and reduce the
risk of heart attacks. Bypass surgeries ensure
that enough blood can reach the heart when some
arteries may be narrowed or blocked.

  • Although heart bypass surgery is a common
    procedure these days, the thought of any heart
    operation can be overwhelming, so this article
    aims to explain what to expect in the lead up,
    how you can prepare, and ease any concerns about
    having life-saving heart surgery.
  • There are several tests before a bypass
    operation and specific steps you should take
    ahead of time.

  • The consultation is a great opportunity for you
    to ask questions about what you should expect in
    the next stages of your treatment. The
    cardiologists will give you as much information
    about your operation as possible at the clinic,
    but feel free to use this opportunity to allay
    any fears you any have about next steps.
  • A review of your medical history will be
    undertaken at this time. You could expect to be
    asked about
  • Any medicine or tablets you might currently be
    taking. It can be helpful to bring the packages
    of such medicine with you to the appointment.
  • Experience with previous an aesthetics and
    whether they caused any problems such as nausea
  • Any allergies
  • Family History
  • Details of lifestyle, exercise and diet habits

  • Preparing for bypass surgery
  • You can expect to be resting and unable to
    perform any strenuous tasks for a while after
    your surgery. Thats why its important to sort
    out important details before going to the
    hospital, including
  • Transport to and from the hospital
  • Arrange for help at home for up to two weeks
    after your surgery
  • Remind yourself on what the surgery involves
  • Stock up on easily prepared foods, such as
    healthy ready meals, cans and staples.
  • Prepare your home so you have everything you
    might need within arms reach, or near to the
    place you will be spending most of your time in
    recovery. This may include entertainment,
    medicines, phone, glasses, tissues, etc.
  • Stop smoking as far ahead of the surgery as you
    can. Smoking can lead to chest infections,
    leading to complications during the surgery.
  • If you have questions about bypass
    surgery-whether you need it or what to expect if
    youre already booked in for the procedure
     Venturi Cardiology is happy to offer a
    consultation. Get in touch today to book an
    appointment.
