Order Sets for Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Protocol
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols are designed to facilitate recovery from surgical procedures. They have been shown to reduce surgical morbidity and length of stay in hospital1,2 and may be associated with better cancer-specific survival.3 Until recently, there was no specific ERAS protocol for breast reconstruction. A newly developed and internationally relevant protocol, based on a systematic review and consensus recommendations, can now guide the optimal perioperative management of this patient population.4 Based on this protocol, we have developed detailed order sets, with specific drug names and doses. Such information may be useful for centers intending to implement an ERAS protocol for breast reconstruction.
