Himedik.com – Many artists such as Nagita Slavina, Tasya Kamila to Felicya Angelista gave birth by caesarean section using the ERACS method, which allows mothers to recover faster, even in a matter of hours.
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery or ERACS surgery is a method presented to speed up the healing process for outpatient surgery during, before, during, and after delivery.
As the fanfare says, the ERACS method is indeed intended to minimize physiological responses and pain during the operation period and afterwards.

“The implementation of the ERACS method can allow you to move freely more quickly and be able to go home with your baby more quickly. This method uses a series of anesthetic techniques as well as administering pain relievers and a group of specialist doctors to help you feel recovered faster,” said the Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist at Eka Hospital BSD, dr. Dewi Ratih Hendarto Putri, Sp.OG, MSi.Med via information received by suara.com, Saturday (14/1/2023).
So that there are no more cesarean birth mothers are forbidden to move too much 12 to 24 hours after the birth of the baby.
Following are the advantages of Caesarean section, according to dr. Goddesses that can be taken into consideration:
1. Shorten Fasting Time
The ERACS method can shorten your fasting time before starting the surgery process. You only need to fast for food for 6 hours and fast for drinking for 2 hours before the operation is carried out. With that, the convenience of mothers to enjoy food or snacks can be done longer.
2. Can Move Freely Faster
The ERACS operation also allows the mother to be able to move and return to her activities more quickly than with other caesarean methods. This is because the release of infusion drugs and the catheter can be removed more quickly, and mothers can also try breastfeeding their little one right away.
3. Reducing Postoperative Risk
ERACS can also reduce the risks that can occur after surgery, such as infection, fatigue, nausea, and constipation. That way, mothers can immediately play with their baby without having to feel pain.
ERACS Operation Preparation Process
In the process of carrying out the ERACS, the doctor will prepare a series of things that must be done starting from the preparation to the process of carrying out the ERACS operation. Before starting the labor process, the doctor will ask the mother as a patient to fast for food for 6 hours before the operation begins.
However, up to 2 hours before the operation, the doctor will ask the patient to drink liquids or drinks containing sugar to meet the needs of energy sources during the operation.
Then the anesthesiologist will choose the type of anesthetic drug that is needed to speed up the patient’s recovery, and perform anesthesia with a very small spinal needle injection so that the patient does not feel too much pain during the anesthesia process, both during and after surgery.
After the anesthesiologist has finished giving the anesthetic, the obstetrician will immediately carry out the delivery process optimally and quickly so that the mother will not feel uncomfortable for too long. The anesthesiologist will also oversee the postoperative delivery process to see the patient’s progress and response so that the recovery process will certainly be shorter.
