Fast-tracking in outpatient surgery is a new paradigm that allows for rapid throughput and early discharge, thereby facilitating perioperative efficiency. Compared with the conventional recovery process, bypassing the postanesthesia care unit reduces the time to discharge home. An ideal anesthetic technique for fast-tracking would provide for rapid emergence and the prevention of common postoperative complications such as pain, nausea, and vomiting using a multimodal approach.
