NORA is a very young field of anesthesia practice. The idea of a text concerning NORA would have seemed unlikely as recently as five years ago, so prognosticating about the future of NORA has potential pitfalls. Most particularly, the pace of change in medical practice can be very rapid, especially if a disruptive or innovative technology is introduced. None-the-less, certain predications can be made based on the rapid evolution of NORA. It will be interesting to look back in thirty years and to see what percentage of these predications prove to be accurate. This chapter discusses and predicts the future of NORA, its expected growth, and how facilities and practices will need to evolve to accommodate it.
