Owner Permissions

We always try to perform ultrasound without sedation, but it may be required for patients that are too anxious to perform it safely or properly as well as for FNAs. Please inform owner that if it is deemed that sedation is required, and owner does not approve it, ultrasound will not be performed.
FNA will require an updated platelet count (within last 2 weeks) for all cases, as well as a coagulation panel for liver FNAs.
Bleeding should be discussed. It is extremely rare but can occur in some cases and very small percentage of patients will require a transfusion or emergency surgery if bleeding occurs.
