Perioperative Fluid Management


Patients are still being harmed as a result of sub-optimal perioperative fluid management. This is unacceptable in any health care system. We believe that too much time and energy has gone into debating the choice of technologies and far too little on reducing variation and delivering consistent high-quality care. This has to stop.

The CHEERS-DREAM Campaign wants everyone to concentrate energy and efforts on achieving a simple set of objectives that everyone can sign up to and deliver, starting today. No more excuses - let’s just do it!

We believe that all patients following elective surgery should be:

  • Carbohydrate loaded (not hungry)
  • Hydrated (not thirsty)
  • Euvolemic (the right amount of fluid)
  • Eunatremic (the right amount of salt)
  • Ready to
  • Start

  • DRinking
  • EAting
  • Mobilising and that this will Enhance Surgical Recovery.
