Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) pathways promote an evidence based, multidisciplinary approach to patient care aimed at facilitating faster recovery from surgery, decreasing hospital length of stay, and minimizing post-operative complications. From scheduling through discharge, all phases of perioperative care are incorporated into ERAS pathways.
The Cardiac Surgery: Bypass and Thoracotomy Synopsis provides a high-level overview of the care standards employed for this ERAS.
