Introduction
Examining the patient’s level of satisfaction with anaesthesia for surgery is an important tool to gather information about the strengths and weaknesses of services rendered. The aim of the research was to grade the satisfaction level of the patients regarding anaesthesia according to PSSZ in chosen aspects.

Material and methods
The research was undertaken with 217 patients after operation from surgical and gynaecologic branches. The majority of the respondents were 79.6%. The average age of respondents was 46.69 years (18-86 years). A diagnostic survey method was used with the addition of a standardised questionnaire: the Polish Scale of Satisfaction with Anaesthesia.

Results
The satisfaction is located between to ends of the scale, from satisfied to not satisfied. A correlation was found between PSSZ and the age of the respondents (p < 0.05), and it was found that the level of satisfaction with anaesthesia increased with the age of the patients. However, no correlation was found between PSSZ and gender, place of residence, and education (p > 0.05). In addition, it was shown that pharmacological preparation, time spent in the operating theatre, and type of anaesthesia affected the level of satisfaction with anaesthesia.

Conclusions
1. The satisfaction among the examined patients with anaesthesia was at an average level. 2. Patient age can determine the satisfaction level; older patients were more satisfied with anaesthesia than were younger patients. 3. The use of pharmacological preparation, the type of anaesthesia used, and the length of stay in the operating theatre may lead to better assessment of satisfaction with anaesthesia.
