Chapter 4 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It focuses on preoperative patient assessment which aims to provide adequate information to surgical and anesthetic team members to allow them to formulate the most appropriate surgical and anesthetic plans. It cites the components of the preoperative assessment including a review of the previous medical records. Among the common risk factors for coronary artery disease are advanced age, diabetes and hypertension.
