Edwards Enhanced Surgical Recovery Program

Implementing Hemodynamic Optimization through Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy

Based on clinical evidence, we believe the lack of a standardized approach leads to variations in the care and outcomes of surgical patients.
This process inconsistency contributes to preventable complications and avoidable costs.

Studies show that you can reduce complications and avoid costs through the implementation of Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy (PGDT):1,2

This process map is designed to help you implement an Enhanced Surgical Recovery (ESR) Program at your hospital. For access to support tools to guide your ESR Program, please contact your Edwards Lifesciences representative. If you’d like program implementation support, Edwards Lifesciences can provide support under a separate service agreement. For more information, please contact your Edwards Lifesciences representative.
