Because more procedures are being performed in outpatient and outside of the OR (OOOR) settings, it is important for the anesthesiologist to not only provide an optimal anesthetic for these patients but also ensure patient and personnel safety. This chapter will discuss anesthesia for common urologic outpatient/OOOR procedures, including cystourethroscopy, ureteroscopy, transurethral procedures except TURP, laser use, percutaneous renal procedures, and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.

Chapter.  8234 words.  Illustrated.
