Abstract
The Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) is a key element in ensuring a successful operative experience. Recovery from surgery is dependent on a transition from the intensive focus of the operating room to safe care in the hospital ward or home after surgery. The key area of transition is the PACU. It is in the PACU that the patient ‘awakens’ from anesthesia. Respiratory function has to be maintained and stable vials signs have to be assured. In addition, pain issues as well as postoperative nausea have to be addressed. In an effort to facilitate throughout each type of surgery is establishing protocols to aid in rapid recovery, minimize pain, increase ambulation, and decrease hospital stay. What are the keys to ensuring patient safety in the PACU?
