PACU = regular post-anaesthesia care unit patients (NEMS ≤15), IMC = more complex, intermediate care patients (NEMS >15), NRS = numeric rating scale. Black bars: patients with NRS = 0, striped bars: patients with NRS 1–4, white bars: patients with NRS 5–10. Difference (triangle) between admittance (Adm) and discharge (Disc), single asterisks: p <0.05.
