  Purpose
This study is a 3-legged randomized study examining whether during shoulder surgery performed in the beach chair position active compressions of the lower leg with a sequential compression device (SCD) have a superior effect on stabilizing cerebral and circulatory hemodynamics when compared to TED stockings or a control group without any stockings.

  • cardiac output [ Time Frame: per minute ]
    cardiac output averaged over 1 minute during the entire surgery

  • Stroke volume [ Time Frame: per minute ]
    stroke volume averaged over 1 minute during the entire surgery

  • mean arterial pressure [ Time Frame: per minute ]
    MAP averaged over 1 minute during the entire surgery


Estimated Enrollment: 60

Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sequential compression device
During arthroscopic shoulder surgery, an SCD device will be applied to the patients legs during surgery. Cerebral oxygenation and circulatory parameters will be recorded continuously throughout the surgery. Recordings will be hidden to the primary caregiver.
Device: Sequential compression device
a sequential compression device will be applied to the legs
Other Name: SCD express Kendall
Experimental: TED stockings
During arthroscopic shoulder surgery, TED stockings will be applied to the patients legs during surgery. Cerebral oxygenation and circulatory parameters will be recorded continuously throughout the surgery. Recordings will be hidden to the primary caregiver.
Other: TED stockings
TED stockings will be applied to the patients legs during surgery
Other Name: TED compression stockings, Kendall
No Intervention: Control
no stockings will be applied to the patients legs
