Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

This study was designed to evaluate patient satisfaction with a regional anesthesia procedure and factors associated with the mood state of those patients at the time.

METHODS:

The study was performed with 300 patients who underwent surgery under regional anesthesia. The patients were given a questionnaire while in the recovery room about the experience of undergoing regional anesthesia to determine patient satisfaction and mood state during the procedure.

RESULTS:

The overall level of satisfaction with regional anesthesia was 82.3%. The level of satisfaction was higher in the age group of 18-25 years, male gender, in patients who had a previous regional anesthesia experience, and in patients who were well informed about regional anesthesia in a preoperative anesthetic evaluation. There was a relationship between pain due to failed spinal anesthesia during surgery and dissatisfaction with regional anesthesia. Patients who were properly informed preoperatively mostly expressed the feeling of 'safe.' Patients who underwent urological interventions most often expressed the feeling of 'comfortable'. Patients underwent gynecological and obstetrical surgeries mostly expressed the feeling 'excited'. Patients who underwent general surgical procedures and patients who were not informed preoperatively about regional anesthesia most often reported feeling 'anxious.'

CONCLUSION:

Providing adequate preoperative information to the patient about regional anesthesia will increase overall satisfaction and will assure the patient feels safe during the perioperative period.
