Surgery is typically performed using one or more types of anesthesia. An important patient outcome related to the anesthetic, and a measure of quality from the patient's perspective, is patient satisfaction with anesthesia care. Currently, no psychometrically validated instruments that measure patient satisfaction with general anesthesia care are available in the United States. This integrative review focuses on identifying factors related to adult patients' satisfaction with general anesthesia care. We found the most frequently mentioned modifiable factors related to patient satisfaction were information provided and pain or discomfort. The only nonmodifiable factor with sufficient evidence to include in future studies on instrument development is the patient's age. This review provides information that can help in the design and implementation of quality improvement initiatives and in the development of an instrument to measure patient satisfaction with general anesthesia care.
