About this book
ERAS programs following surgical interventions are now part of the standard of care for patients undergoing various operative procedures. These programs have been associated with reductions in complications, in length of hospital stay after surgery and in related costs, and have led to improved patient QOL.
Enhanced Recovery after Surgery discusses a range of aspects of the program, from surgical procedure to perioperative management. Each chapter is written by experts in the field, including digestive, cardiopulmonary and pediatric surgeons.
It is a valuable resource for surgeons, nurses and administrators interested in initiating an ERAS program.
