Abstract

With today's technological advances in outpatient surgery, anesthetic technique does not differ significantly between inpatient and outpatient settings. It is important to decide which setting is most appropriate for the patient based on the surgeon's ability, the patient's comorbidities, the facility resources, and the staff who will provide care for the patient. Matching all of the above can lead to good outcomes, less complications, and a good patient experience.
