Abstract The study was undertaken to ascertain whether a light standard breakfast would influence the volume and median pH of gastric contents. Comparisons were obtained between a group of patients (n = 22) fasted overnight and a group (n = 23) allowed a light breakfast. There were no significant differences between the groups in respect of the volume of gastric contents aspirated, the median pH of the gastric contents or the number of patients with a pH of less than 3.0 unit.
