Enhanced Recovery After Surgery: Guideline Update

Filmed at the 2019 EACTS Annual Meeting in Lisbon, Portugal, Daniel Engelman of Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts, moderates a discussion of the recently published guidelines of the Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery Society. Dr Engelman is joined by four other ERAS Cardiac Society board members, including Michael Grant of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, V. Seenu Reddy of TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, Alexander John Gregory of the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, Canada, and Louis P. Perrault of the Montreal Heart Institute in Quebec, Canada. They discuss the new guidelines in depth, including key multidisciplinary interventions around cardiac surgery that provide best practices for the team and for patients by identifying phases of care as preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative. These guidelines can be viewed on JAMA Surgery online as well as the ERAS Cardiac Society's website.
