Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a new perioperative concept that aims
to reduce perioperative stress response and accelerate rehabilitation of patients
through a variety of optimized management. With the wider application of this
concept,the effective implementation of ERAS program has become a new challenge.
Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) has shown promising value in the
preoperative assessment,perioperative optimization,and postoperative
rehabilitation of ERAS. This article reviews the application of CPET in ERAS,with
an attempt to provide evidence for more detailed and comprehensive ERAS program.
