However, feasibility and factors impacting FTCA implementation remain poorly explored both locally and internationally. We describe the specific intraoperative and postoperative protocols for our FTCA program, assess protocol compliance and identify reasons for FTCA failure. We tested the program in 16 patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. There was 100% compliance with the FTCA protocols. Four (25%) patients successfully completed the FTCA protocol (extubated < 4 h postoperatively and discharged from the intensive care unit on the same operative day).||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/26646||DOI:||10.1186/s13104-021-05620-w||ORCID:||0000-0001-7403-7680||PubMed URL:||34022969||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Cardiac anesthesia
