This prospective study was aimed at identifying the time of thirst above the recommended two hours after repeated information campaigns. Elective surgical patients ≥ 15 years of age were eligible to answer the questionnaire in four different periods between which information campaigns were carried out. A total of 765 patients were included. The median time of thirst was reduced from 6.5 hours to 3.0 hours (p <0.0001) over a two-year period. Repeated interventions were found to be necessary to reduce the period of thirst to the recommended two hours for elective surgical patients.
Translated title of the contributionInformation campaigns can reduce unnecessary prolonged time of thirst in elective surgical patients
