suitable for the ERAS program at the moment. ERAS Procedure Preadmission and Preoperative Step At our center, a 24-hour unit is dedicated to the support of ERAS care, has trained nurses, and is a place in which a patient briefing session is held once the intervention is scheduled ( Fig. 1 ). 33 The meeting with the surgeon is immediately followed by consultations with an anesthesiologist and physiotherapist (patient preoperative education). Then an ERAS nurse explains the pre- and postoperative stages of the procedure, as well as the prescribed home medication, and

included in service level agreements between referring hospitals and the NETS. Orientation to the aircraft and safety briefings for the neurosurgeons were also conducted. The current protocol has been successful to date, with no patient complications or compromise in those cases where the protocol was used. Rather, we believe that in several cases the neurosurgical procedures were lifesaving. We have also demonstrated that mobile neurosurgery has decreased time to critical surgery from a median triage to tertiary admission from 06:16 hours (IQR 2:30–07:22 hours) down
