Before surgery that requires anesthesia the patient is told stuff like don't eat. Some people cannot sleep well prior to surgery.

Can having a full night or regular good sleep fair better for keeping a patient under or not slipping into a coma?

On the other hand, if a patient is known to come out of anesthesia be kept awake the night prior to stay under better?

What other ways could too much or not enough sleep could affect surgery?

  • @ChrisRogers how it this? I am just curious on what people would say here. I don't know and SE is where I ask. – Muze Apr 25 '19 at 19:40

    There are valid reasons for pre-surgical instructions such as not eating, but what you're asking is very broad and vague. As @ChrisRogers pointed out, I think you should do some research on your own and narrow this question down. – Carey Gregory Apr 26 '19 at 1:45
