This detailed discussion sheds more light on The Perioperative Quality Initiative (POQI), the resources available to you and the impact it is having on a global understanding of Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine.

Further discussion delves into the evergreen fluid debate and walks us through the timeline of how attitudes toward them have changed in the perioperative sphere over the last ten years or so. “We should be fair to the originators of Enhanced Recovery who did not talk about fluid restriction but instead about avoidance of fluid excess”

Presented by Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen with Sol Aronson, a tenured professor at Duke University and Executive Vice Chairman in the Department of Anesthesiology and their guests Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and critical care at the University of Southampton and Tim Miller, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology from Duke University Medical Centre.
