Validation of Telemedicine Pre-anesthesia Consultation in Low-risk Anesthetic Patients Undergoing Ambulatory Surgery

Brief Summary

The purpose of this study is to validate the teleconsultation of anesthesia in anesthetic low risk patients and undergoing outpatient surgery.

Detailed Description

Anesthesia consultation is a necessary and obligatory step in the process of anesthesia. Telemedicine anesthesia consultation (TCAD) experiments have been successfully conducted in the United States, demonstrating the technical feasibility and medical relevance of the approach. In partnership with the Rhône-Alpes Regional Health Agency, an Telemedicine anesthesia consultation will be set up at the University Hospital Grenoble for low-risk anesthetic and surgical patients via a telemedicine platform accessible to patients' homes. Avoiding transport, unclog consultations in hospitals, and avoiding absences from work for traditional consultations are some of the advantages of this new method of consultation. This project involves assessing the feasibility, safety, and costs associated with home anesthesia teleconsultation for patients requiring outpatient surgery.
