Abstract

Day case surgery is now very much popular and it comprises the admission of a patient, operative treatment, recovery and safe discharge within the same day. The availability of shorter acting anaesthetics, longer acting analgesics and effective antiemetics is very much helpful for safe anaesthetic care. Patient selection is important. Surgical procedures which need minimum postoperative care and can be managed at home and are devoid of serious hazards are suitable for day-case surgery. Patient should be thoroughly examined to consider fit for discharge.
