Hi,

Please advise, what is the correct expression for examination before surgery? We call it "internal examination" or "A&E examination" but I am not sure whether it is correct.

Thanks.

Subjective difficulties:

Please realize the A&E examination (translator’s note: examination which is made in case of planned surgery and application of anesthesia, e.g. you should not have fever, etc.)


Dg. S83.43 Sprain and strain of knee joint, partial rupture of laterla collateral ligament

    A&E often means "Accident and Emergency" – or what I know as simply "Emergency." It's where you go in the hospital when you have a serious problem that needs immediate attention.

    The one I had before my surgery last year was called a "pre-operative assessment".

    It certainly wasn't an 'internal examination'. :eek:
