GONZALEZ LOPEZ, Sergio Luis et al. Fast Track Pediatric Surgery Guideline. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2020, vol.92, n.3, e1010.  Epub Sep 01, 2020. ISSN 0034-7531.

In the last decades, there has been more attention on the results of the surgical activity due to economic factors, the improvement of perioperative cares and the concern on the quality of the care and the population´s satisfaction. The development and implementation of the clinical pratice´s guides had contributed to that purpose. These guides reduce the variations in the cares to the surgical patients, increase efficiency in that kind of care and foster that the patients are benefited with institutional initiatives addressed to improve health care quality. The Fast Track Pediatric Surgery is a model of medical-surgical care directed to lower the costs of medical care by means of coordinated efforts that allow the reduction of the hospital stay in patients without increasing the rates of postoperative complications, or dissatisfaction of the patients and relatives with the service given. The use of this procedure has been increasing in pediatric conditions. It has been implemented since some years ago in the Pediatric Hospital of Cienfuegos province, and the guide was approved in the Pediatric Surgery service in December, 2018.To share this guide by publishing it will be a way to allow other pediatric surgery services in the country to use it as a reference for the implementation of that model in their institutions and in that way to benefit a higher number of patients.
