Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Patient Selection For Ambulatory Surgery: Can Any Patient Be an Outpatient?

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

Appropriate patient selection has been shown to correlate with perioperative outcome after ambulatory surgery. As complexity of patients and surgical procedures performed in an ambulatory setting increases, it is necessary to determine appropriate patient selection. This lecture will discuss the current literature that allows appropriate patient selection, particularly in high risk patients with patients with difficult airways, morbid obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, cardiac comorbidities including patients with pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.
