ANESTHESIA FOR ONE-DAY SURGERY
Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Haartmaninkatu 2, Hyks, Finland
Regional anaesthesia is useful in day surgery when properly applied. Most commonly used techniques are IVRA, axillary block, local/infiltration plus monitored anaesthesia care. Spinal anaesthesia is also frequently used in DS. Depending on the technique used RA may fasten or prolong discharge when compared to general anaesthesia. The use of monitored anaesthesia care as an adjunct to RA increases patient acceptability and satisfaction with different blocks. In most cases there is less pain after operation if RA was used when compared to GA but control of pain is important at the time when the block wears off. Patient information and coperation as well as timely discharge of patients home is important for successful RA in DS.
