Abstract

Ever since the establishment of SAMBA, ambulatory surgeries have grown from 10% to more than 70% for all effective surgical procedures. The availability of improved anaesthetic and surgical techniques allows more extensive procedures to be performed on an ambulatory basis. Orthopaedic patients can be particularly challenging. These patients represent a broad scope of problems ranging from an elderly patient with multiple comorbid conditions to a young deceptively healthy trauma patient who may have associated injuries that can have significant impacts on the type of anaesthesia administered.
