Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nīmes
  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that preoperative fasting does not increase the rate of lowered blood volume (defined by a variation of 15% ΔITV during a leg lift) in patients undergoing surgery.

Condition Intervention
Hypovolemia Procedure: echocardiography

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Echocardiographic Assessment of Volume Variation Secondary to Preoperative Fasting

Further study details as provided by Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nīmes:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The presence / absence of a hypovolemia following preoperative fasting [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Hypovolemia is determined by the % change in the subaortic velocity time integral during a leg lift before and after fasting: a 15% decrease is considered as a "presence".


Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: January 2011
Study Completion Date: April 2011
Primary Completion Date: April 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
The study population
Patients will be recruited during anesthesia consultations carried out before programmed pelvic or visceral surgeries.
Procedure: echocardiography
Echocardiography is performed for all patients
