Update following the publication of the ERAS Guidelines for Cardiac Surgery

ERAS Colleagues,

We are pleased to share our:

Guidelines for Perioperative Care in Cardiac Surgery:  Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Society Recommendations published in JAMA Surgery.

Our release of this landmark manuscript was announced during the recent American Association for Thoracic Surgeons on May 4th.  It contains graded recommendations for 22 subjects that can be considered to enhance recovery after cardiac surgery and was endorsed by the Enhanced Recovery after Surgery Society®.   Upon publication in JAMA Surgery, it has been viewed over 15,000 times in the first 10 days, making this one of the most viewed articles ever in this journal. It has an Altmetric score placing it in the top 1% of “attention scores” of all published manuscripts.  We are very pleased it has been so well received, and thus wanted to share it with each of you.  You can download the article from JAMA surgery without cost here.

We would also like to share our latest ERAS Cardiac Newsletter.

Thank you for your interest and continued support of the non-profit ERAS® Cardiac Society.  We look forward to future collaboration, meetings, and publications. Please visit our website for updates and further information,

The Society for Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery (ERAS® Cardiac) mission is to optimize perioperative care of cardiac surgical patients through collaborative discovery, analysis, expert consensus, and dissemination of best practices.
