Fluid Infusion During Breast Surgery
Recruitment status was Not yet recruiting
The investigators want to investigate the effects of two different kinds of fluid infusions given during varicose vein surgery. Both types of fluid are regularly given during surgery, and the investigators want to compare their respective effects on balance, nausea/vomiting and orthostatic function after surgery.
The investigators' hypothesis is that using a colloid solution will improve orthostatic function, balance, nausea/vomiting and reduce hospital stay.
Drug: Hydroxyethylstarch 130/0,4
Drug: Lactated Ringer's solution

The optimal amount and type of fluid given during surgery has not been defined. It has been agreed that hypovolemia must be avoided, but at the same time it has been agreed that fluid excess is harmful for organ function.When distributing fluids it is usually either crystalloids og colloids which are given. The effects of the two types of fluid have not been compared. Our hypothesis is that using a colloid (HES 130/0,4) will improve orthostatic function, nausea/vomiting and shorten hospital stay, compared to using a crystalloid (Lactated Ringer's solution).The amount of fluid the patient receives, will be individually tailored by monitoring SV using esophageal Doppler technique during surgery.
