This is a cross-sectional, observational, prospective, multicentre study, conduct in France among a representative sample of anesthesiologists.
The factors influencing the choice of anesthesia (spinal anesthesia or short general anesthesia) will be assessed in patients undergoing an outpatient surgery. Data will be collected by the physician during the inclusion visit (peripostoperative consultation). Additional data regarding the patient's perception (pain and satisfaction) will be collected using a self-questionnaire 7 days after the surgery.
Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional

Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected directly into the spinal cord.
A local anesthetic of the amide type now generally used for surface anesthesia. It is one of the most potent and toxic of the long-acting local anesthetics and its parenteral use is restricted to spinal anesthesia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1006)
A potent local anesthetic of the ester type used for surface and spinal anesthesia.
Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.
The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
