Our research aims to explore the impact of rapid recovery strategies on the efficacy of post-surgical rehabilitation of chronically ill patients. 160 cases of chronically ill patients who underwent surgery admitted to our hospital from May 2022 to May 2023 were selected and randomly divided into 80 cases each in the control group and the study group; the enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) group implemented the rapid rehabilitation surgical strategy in anesthesia management, and the control group implemented the conventional anesthesia management; the evaluation indexes related to the perioperative period of the patients in the two groups were compared, including the temperature in the different time points of the two groups; the postoperative pain score, strong analgesia utilization rate; postoperative hospitalization days and hospitalization cost. The temperature of the ERAS group was at a higher level at 1h after anesthesia and at the end of surgery, and it was higher than that of the control group (P<0.05). The postoperative pain score and strong analgesic utilization rate of the ERAS group were lower than that of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Hospital stay and hospitalization costs of the ERAS group were smaller than those of the control group (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Rapid rehabilitation strategy for post-surgical rehabilitation of chronically ill patients can play a role in maintaining higher temperature, reducing patients' postoperative pain, shortening postoperative hospitalization time, and saving medical costs. Therefore, it is recommended that rapid rehabilitation strategies be actively used in the process of post-surgical rehabilitation of chronically ill patients to promote early recovery.
