ERAS is being employed widely for certain procedure types and GDFT has been shown to improve outcomes. Perioperative goal directed fluid therapy (GDFT) is a prime component of the enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocol. Multiple studies have demonstrated a relationship between GDFT and positive patient outcomes including decreased hospital stays, decreased ileus formation, decreased gastrointestinal related issues, decreased nausea, and hemodynamic stability. Electrolyte disturbances following a positive fluid balance may occur and GDFT is aimed at euvolemia to avoid a hypervolemic state. Carbohydrate loading, early discontinuance of postoperative intravenous fluids, and use of iso-osmotic solutions all are components of GDFT. Lactated Ringers is the fluid recommended for non-renal and hepatically compromised patients. The negative consequences associated with hypervolemia deem it pertinent to devise an individualized GDFT plan in the ERAS protocol.
