Official Title

The Development of a Novel Same Day Discharge Program After Pulmonary Resection: A Safety and Feasibility Pilot Study


Monitoring carefully selected participants to determine if participants can be safely discharged the same day of pulmonary resection

Trial Description

Primary Outcome:

  • Rate of successful same day discharge
Determination of the feasibility of implementing a same day discharge program after minor pulmonary surgery. This will be determined by evaluating the percentage of participants who have chest tubes removed successfully, as well as evaluating the percentage of participants who would be classified as discharged on the day of surgery.
