Fast Track Surgery
What is Fast-Track Surgery ?
Enhanced recovery after surgery (fast–track surgery) entails a multidisciplinary approach to perioperative care to permit earlier discharge from the hospital. Patient education and motivation, early feeding and mobilization, and a multimodal analgesic regime are all essential.
Fast track surgery combines various techniques used in the care of patients undergoing elective operations. The methods used include epidural or regional anaesthesia, minimally invasive techniques, optimal pain control, and aggressive postoperative rehabilitation, including early enteral (oral) nutrition and ambulation. The combination of these approaches reduces the stress response and organ dysfunction and therefore greatly shorten the time required for full recovery.
