Anesthesia is often considered as the service delivered during surgery or procedure. This simplification obscures an important role of anesthesiologists as chaperones of patient safety with the sole goal of providing precise care at the right moment and in the right way in order to ensure the most optimal outcome for the patients. This holistic and well-rooted tradition of the practice is resurging as the future of anesthesiology practice.
Peri-operative care encompasses pre- and post-anesthesia care delivery. Pre-operative care entails qualification of the patient for the procedure, risk/benefit analysis for performing surgery, optimization of the patient health status, and optimum timing for procedure. Digital technology, electronic medical records, comprehensive data analysis, and genomic data play an increasing role in these determinations. Adequate patient preparation for procedure stresses physical, cognitive, and behavioral pre-conditioning. Post-operative care involves the rehabilitation process or other forms of support tailored to patient recovery and outcome and is often modeled on ERAS structures.
This Topical Collection focuses on the optimization of care delivery before and after an anesthesia event. The collection focuses on the medical and operational aspects of the preparation of patients before anesthesia. Additionally, post-operative care with special respect for augmented recovery, digital technologies, and long-term outcomes of anesthesia in terms of cognitive and physical outcomes are complementary interests of this collection.
We welcome original research, points of view, case reports, and a limited number of reviews.
