Brief Summary:
Cardiac output can be monitored using different invasive devices. Nexfin HD is a new, noninvasive device that uses model flow technology to measure stroke volume and thus computes cardiac output (CO). To evaluate this new device the investigators compared esophageal doppler CO to Nexfin HD CO in patients scheduled for elective abdominal surgery.
