Perioperative care refers to all of the strategies and actions related to patient care from the moment the decision to operate surgically is made until the patient leaves the hospital. It includes a wide range of procedures and practices that are aimed at reducing surgical stress, preventing complications, accelerating patient recovery, and improving the patient’s experience.
Complicated intra-abdominal infections are considered to be an important cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly if poorly managed. On the other side, the management of intraoperative mechanical ventilation is crucial to protect the lungs.
This webinar is organised by the ESICM Anaesthesia & Peri-operative Medicine (APM) Section.
