Understanding Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Guidelines: An Introductory Approach.

Elias KM. Understanding Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Guidelines: An Introductory Approach. J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A. 2017 Sep;27(9):871-875. 

What is already known:

Whilst ERAS protocols have been around for a long time, but units new to ERAS can be put off by the complexity of having to introduce up to 30 different elements and up to 100 individual variables.

What this paper adds:

The author has attempted and done well to simplify the guidelines and broken them down into simple chunks as well as ensuring the work is distributed amongst the different members of the multi-disciplinary team. A good summary for someone looking to get set up a new ERAS pathway.
