protocol 1.027 : Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) - GYN Light Protocol

A growing body of data suggests that excessive perioperative opioid utilization and over-aggressive fluid administration contribute to perioperative morbidity. Anesthetic techniques designed to minimize opioid use, as well as base fluid administration on a restricted, "goal-directed" approach are major components of ERAS protocols at both the Mayo Clinic and Duke University. Using the Mayo and Duke protocols as a guide, the following protocol was developed by the ERAS Task Force in an effort to improve relevant outcomes in GYN surgical patients. [Contact B. Sarosiek]
