Abstract

After many years of experience in surgery, a series of recommendations have been created by a group of European specialists to improve the quality of perioperative care and maximize postoperative outcomes. Early mobilization and oral feeding, preoperative oral intake of carbohydrate-rich fluids, proper fluid and pain management, intensive postoperative nausea and vomiting prophylaxis, and antimicrobial and thromboembolism prophylaxis are the interventions that may decrease surgery-induced metabolic stress and facilitate the return of bowel function and early discharge. The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) Society is the group that focuses on these perioperative issues. This paper aims to summarize the role of anaesthesiologists in the implementation of the ERAS protocol.
