ERAS – Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

ERAS coregroup of IAPEN

IAPEN strongly recommends, the surgical team, the clinical nutritionists, ICU team and nurses, based on the available facilities in the developing countries, should increase their skill set and standards for attenuating the stress response to surgery and enable rapid recovery of patients. Instead of forming a ERAS team and involving everyone, we should first strive to increase our standards in Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition.
