ERAS® stands for Enhanced Recovery after Surgery, and we improve surgical care and recovery through research, education, audit, and implementation of evidence-based practices. In early 2017, a group of cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and intensivists first met to establish the Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery (ERACS) Society to achieve these goals for patients undergoing heart surgery. This initial organization’s work led to the publication of the first-ever expert consensus recommendations for a cardiac surgical enhanced recovery protocol. We have since joined with the ERAS® Society and have established an organization of multinational experts representing all aspects of healthcare delivery. ERAS® Cardiac is a non-profit organization with the mission to develop evidence-based expert consensus statements promoting best practice recovery practices. The goal is to provide hospitals with better guidance for developing local protocols that are part of a continuous quality improvement process for better patient care, and reduce postoperative complications and costs after heart surgery.
