ERAS, ventilation and anesthesia
Despite steady advances in anesthetic and surgical techniques over the years, postoperative complications remain one of the major drawbacks of surgery, not only for the specific patient involved but also for surgical care team and the health care system in general. The progressive understanding of the physiological basis of surgical injury has been the rationale for the research efforts of interdisciplinary teams, incorporating surgeons, anesthesiologists and nurses, physical therapists and others to minimize surgical stress response and thereby improve outcomes. This presentation will identify the various elements of the enhanced recovery protocol (ERP), understand the physiologic rationalization of enhanced recovery strategy, the role of ventilation and anesthesia on the impact of ERP, ascertain the impact of ERP on improving patient outcome and how to implement ERP in community hospitals or major academic medical centers.
