Fast Track Resuscitation

Doctor Athanasios Kleontas in his clinical practice applies rapid recovery and mobilization protocols (fast track surgery or enhanced recovery after surgery - ERAS) to achieve:

  • optimizing of all conditions preoperatively, intraoperatively and postoperatively,
  • minimizing of complications
  • faster return to daily activities
  • reducing duration of hospitalization

 

Some of the key elements of this methodology are:

  • full patient information
  • comprehensive preoperative assessment
  • epidural analgesia or intercostal block
  • optimization of fluid balance
  • active prevention of hypothermia
  • thoracoscopic or minimally invasive incision
  • rapid removal of arterial and venous lines
  • quick removal of urinary catheter
  • immediate start of active physiotherapy and mobilization
  • reducing administration of opioids
  • deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis
  • enhanced feeding

 

It is now confirmed by many clinical studies that when the patient is properly and in detail been informed about all treatment stages then he can obtain:

  • reduced stress
  • reduced postoperative pain
  • quicker mobilization
  • improved recovery
