Abstract

The HealthQuizTM (Nellcor, Inc., Chula Vista, CA) is a hand-held, patient-driven data processor marketed to expedite and enhance the completeness of the history-taking process during the preanesthetic visit. In our preanesthesia assessment center (PAC), we compared preanesthetic visits using the HealthQuizTM device with visits using our standard, written questionnaire.
