  Purpose

Study to investigate the influence of remifentanil and glycopyrrolate on cardiac index and blood pressure in children.To differentiate between contractility and the effect of the circulating volume, some of the subjects will receive additional fluid.This will be evaluated using two transthoracic echocardiac exams within the first 30 min of anesthesia.
