There are three anesthesiologists for every one surgery in Iran, said scientific secretary of the International ERAS (enhanced recovery after surgery) Congress. “There are 4,500 specialists in anesthesiology in the country,” said Dr Atabak Najafi, on the sidelines of the event that concludes on Sunday, Mehr News Agency reported. The death rate as a result of complications of anesthesiology has reduced dramatically over the past 20 years due to access to advanced technologies and equipment as well as enhanced quality of education and knowledge exchange with the global community in the field, he noted. ERAS protocols are multimodal care pathways designed to achieve early recovery after surgical procedures by maintaining preoperative organ function and reducing the profound stress response following surgery. Presidents of global and regional ERAS societies as well as experts in the field are attending the meet.
