Perioperative Fluid Management in Morbidly Obese Patients
In bariatric surgery functional and feasible non- or mini-invasive modalities for monitoring, and ideal/lean body weight estimates are addressed to meet up individual variability in hydration needs, and to avoid hyperhydration.
The aim of the study is to evaluate need of perioperative hydration by comparing conventional monitoring (the control group) to a more advanced approach (individualized goal-directed therapy, IGDT) (the intervention group). In addition to conventional cardiovascular monitoring (ECG, non-invasive blood pressure, Sp02) preoperative transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and a intraoperative perioperative mini-invasive pulse-contour device (FloTrac™) will be used for the purpose.

- Need of perioperative i.v. fluids [ Time Frame: 12 hours ]The primary aim of the study is to evaluate need of perioperative hydration during laparoscopic bariatric surgery. Type and amount of all perioperative fluids infused will be registered. Timing for administration of fluids will be analysed in three steps (preoperative, operating room (OR) and postoperative).
- mean arterial blood pressure [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]Mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) will be measured before induction of anaesthesia, 5 min after endotracheal intubation, 5 min after deep reverse Trendelenburg position and pneumoperitoneum in the intervention and the control groups. In addition, MAP will be registered continuously during surgery.
- Nt-proBNP, creatinine [ Time Frame: 12 hours ]A baseline for Nt-proBNP and creatinine will be taken before i.v fluids preoperatively on the day of surgery. Control samples will be gathered 12 hours postoperatively.

Experimental: The IGDT group
30 morbidly obese subjects scheduled for bariatric surgery by laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) will be consecutively enrolled for the study.
The individualized goal-directed therapy (IGDT) with focus on level of venous return will be implemented in two steps in the intervention group. First, preoperative optimizing of venous return will be performed 45 minutes before surgery in a preoperative room with TTE. Second, after induction of anaesthesia perioperative fluid therapy will be implemented by utilizing the FloTrac-device.

No Intervention: The control group
20 morbidly obese subjects scheduled for bariatric surgery by laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) will consecutively be enrolled for the study. Conventional monitoring will be conducted perioperatively.
The individualized goal-directed therapy (IGDT), with focus on level of venous return, will be implemented in two steps in the intervention group. First, preoperative optimizing of venous return will be performed 45 minutes before surgery in a preoperative room with TTE. Second, after induction of anaesthesia perioperative fluid therapy will be guided by utilizing the FloTrac-device.
Preoperative rehydration with 6 ml colloid fluids (Volulyte™, Fresenius Kabi Ab, Sweden) /kg estimated ideal body weight (IBW) will be administrated if low level of venous return is detected by TTE. After a colloid bolus the second TTE is performed to check the level of venous return. If remaining hypovolemia is found additional colloids 3ml/ kg IBW will be given.
In OR, before pneumoperitoneum, prophylactic i.v. antibiotics will be administrated in total 550ml crystalloids (NaCl 0.9%, Fresenius Kabi Ab, Sweden) to all patients. Infusion of buffered glucose solution (25mg/ml, Fresenius Kabi Ab, Sweden) at rate 1.5ml/kg IBW/h will be initiated to all patients. Stroke volume variation ≥ 12 % is used as a threshold for administration of additional colloids 3ml/kg/ IBW during surgery.
Postoperatively infusion of buffered glucose solution (50mg/ml) is administrated at fixed rate 100ml/h to all patients. In addition, during the stay at the postoperative ward unit 850 ml crystalloids (antibiotics, paracetamol and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs) are infused.
Perioperative ephedrine and/or phenylephrine is used as i.v. injection when necessary to ensure adequate perfusion pressure (MAP ≥ 65 mmHg), cardiac index (≥ 2.0) and heart rate (≥ 50/min) in addition to i.v. fluids in both groups. In principle hemodynamic parameters will be gathered always after five minutes minimum from possible administration of i.v. ephedrine or phenylephrine. Moreover, if pre-existing systolic left ventricular failure is detected in preoperative TTE, infusion of dobutamine 3 - 4ug/kg IBW will be started 10 minutes before induction of anaesthesia.
In the control group perioperative cardiovascular monitoring will be conducted by ECG, non-invasive blood pressure and Sp02 measurements.
