Holding GLP- 1 Agonists prior to procedures

Interested in if other health systems are considering or have implemented a recommendation to hold GLP-1 agonists day before or 1 week before (depending on which product patient is using) procedures that utilize anesthesia services. Link provided for more information on this topic. Appreciate any insight! Thanks!


Thank you!
