Regional Anesthesia for Outpatient Surgery
Outpatient surgery has seen a tremendous increase in volume in recent years. With this increase in volume, an increase in painful, invasive surgery has occurred. A result of this change has been poor outpatient pain control in this surgical setting [1, 2]. This has presented anesthesiologists with a challenging environment, in particular with regard to pain management. Of great value is regional anesthesia.
