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.
