<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Many <em>forces</em>, hospital managers, medical practitioners, parents too, continue to increase pressure to do more outpatients surgery for children.
The emphasis on faster operating room turnaround time, more effective use the space and personnel and the presumed resulting cost reduction are <em>commonly sought</em> goals. These goals are important for all patients, but especially for the pediatric patient, who is much younger who is free from systemic disease and requires simpler, shorter surgical procedurs, and a shorter <em>convalescense</em>.</strong></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Despite many advantages pediatric outpatients surgery can have problems. Since children are usually healthy and usually recover from surgery, some doctors may assume that all such patients are outpatient candidates. There may be delays and inappropriate sheceduling caused by rush, by inappropriate consulting and previously undiagnosed disease.</strong></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>However</em>, nearly all problems can be solved by proper patient selection. Many more patients that at present can undergo outpatient anesthesia, reduce the separation time of the child from family. The advantages listed above will be enchanced when combined with appropriate postoperative discharge criteria and out-of-hospital care. Everyone will benefit: the child, the family, the physician, the hospital staff and even <em>the third party payer</em>.</strong></p>
