Standardized perioperative care helps ensure that all patients receive optimal treatment.


To apply a method of systematic multimodal perioperative care in patients undergoing major pulmonary surgery.


A narrative review was performed of the relevant literature published on the subject in MEDLINE, Cochrane, and Medigraph databases in English, Spanish, and French. Emphasis was made on articles from the last 5 years, especially randomized studies, institutional and national databases, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and ERAS/ERATS programs and protocols, as well as review articles.


The studies retrieved were evaluated by the authors separately and, later, together to define which ones met the objectives. The protocol was divided into 5 phases: preoperative, hospital admission, immediate preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative. For each of them, the actions to be carried out were defined, according to the available evidence.


The implementation of the protocol will allow to go from an empirical phase to an investigative one, so that better results can be obtained in the surgical treatment of patients enrolled in the investigations.
