The ERAS® Society Handbook for Obstetrics & Gynecology covers all aspects of enhanced recovery care for disciplines of general gynecology, gynecologic oncology, urogynecology and obstetrical surgery. Written by renowned experts in the field, chapters discuss foundational knowledge on ERAS and provide specific worked examples, ERAS order sets, and practical implementation tools. This book is an indispensable resource to researchers interested in ERAS, but it is also ideal for anesthesiologists, gynecologists and obstetricians interested in initiating an ERAS program. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a global surgical quality improvement initiative that originated in colorectal surgery and has now spread to numerous other disciplines, including gynecology (benign and malignant) and obstetrics (caesarean delivery). ERAS is associated with improvements in clinical outcomes (reduction in length of hospital stay, complications, readmissions), cost savings for the healthcare system, and patient satisfaction, hence the addition of this comprehensive resource on the topics is a welcomed addition to the available literature.
