  • PONV prophylaxis

  • Careful titration of anesthetics

  • Ensure full recovery of neuromuscular blockade (TOF >0.9)

  • Maintain normal PaO2; avoid hyperoxia

  • Maintain normothermia

  • Maintain normoglycemia (treat glucose >10 mmol/L, avoid hypoglycemia)

  • Fluid therapy: maintain fluid homeostasis; avoid fluid excess & organ hypoperfusion

    • avoid 0.9% saline; use balanced crystalloid solutions
