PMID: 35125739.


Oocyte retrieval is a part of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedures performed on an ambulatory basis. Total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA) with opioid is shown to improve quality of recovery (QOR) after ambulatory surgery. Opioid-free anaesthesia (OF) is gaining popularity in recent times as it is associated with lesser post-operative side effects related to opioids. Quality of recovery is considered as one of the principal end points in ambulatory surgery.
