Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) includes any procedures or testing that must be done prior to surgery.  In addition, the testing allows patients and loved ones to ask questions regarding the upcoming surgery.  Although a physician determines what procedures are to be done, routine pre-admission testing often includes: EKGs, blood pressure testing, laboratory blood work and other X-ray images.
