Abstract

In a world of rapidly changing policies in healthcare and the constant search for value-based medical care, the anaesthesiologist must be aware of new anaesthetic drugs and techniques utilized in daily practice, and most importantly, be updated on the implications of using these techniques in the ambulatory (day-case) setting without compromising patient safety or jeopardizing the physician-patient relationship. The ambulatory surgery movement has led to some of the most substantial changes in anaesthesia, with special emphasis on recovery care when the patient is rapidly brought into contact with their relatives or escorts shortly after emerging from a sedative or anaesthetic state.
