ERAS represents an improvement in the way care is delivered to you during your entire surgical journey. As a concept, it is a renewed focus on you, your preparation for and recovery from major surgery.
In practice, it is a set of guidelines that have been developed collaboratively by your anesthesia and surgical teams from the most cutting-edge scientific research. The goal of ERAS is to help you return home faster and have an improved overall surgical experience.
PAA anesthesiologists have been leaders in ERAS at Novant Health facilities since its inception in 2016. We collaborate with key members of your surgical team to create and implement the ERAS pathways, and we’re continually keeping these guidelines updated to reflect the latest research. On a day-to-day basis, our primary role is to ensure that the guidelines are optimized to who you are as an individual. We do this by tailoring our protocols to your medical history, performing specialized nerve blocks, and interpreting data from state-of-the-art monitors. This allows us to optimize variables ranging from the amount of fluid you receive to the settings on the ventilators that breathe for you while you’re asleep, and so much more.
