Abstract

Some patients requiring surgical procedures may present with co-existing nutritional disorders. The common nutritional disorders that an anaesthetist can encounter are obesity and malnutrition. The specific effects of these disorders can cause serious problems during anaesthetic management and significantly influence the incidence of morbidity and mortality and as such the outcome of the surgery. Every attempt should be made to prevent, recognize and treat the nutritional disorders as far as practicable.
