Sunday Special | Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership

A special edition of TopMedTalk recorded at The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) live from an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership forum.

How can cold water adaption help people deal with medical issues? There's evidence to suggest that cold water adaption reduces inflamation, can open water swimming help with issues such as chrohn's disease? On the other hand how important is it to ensure patients do not become cold while in our care? Hypothermia is never good, how important is it to keep patients warm? Keeping patients and their environments warm is discussed, as is pre-warming, going beyond the standard blankets and patient insulation to include active warming and even patients exercising as a method of warming up. Further to this conversation, how do you measure a patient's temperature?

How do we drive change in our institutions towards enhanced recovery after surgery? The GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) project is explained. The Health Foundation is also mentioned. The piece also includes patient communication and the question of 'how much is too much?', when administering a dose of morphine. Also, is there a hierarchy on the pathway of enhanced recovery after surgery?

The conversation features Professor Monty Mythen and his two guests; Dr Simeon West, consultant anaethetist at (University College London Hospitals) UCLH who sits on the board at Regional Anaesthesia UK (RAUK) and Mark Harper Consultant Anaesthetist at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, with a research interest in the prevention of perioperative hypothermia and the use of cold water adaptation for theraputic purposes. There are also attributed questions from the audience.
