Brief Summary:
The investigators would like to investigate whether performing ultrasound assessments in patients undergoing surgery for hip fractures is able to identify previously undiagnosed heart or lung conditions. The investigators would like to determine whether information provided by this ultrasound assessment is significant enough to alter the anesthetic management plan of these patients. This study has the potential to demonstrate that ultrasound could be used as a diagnostic bedside tool in the perioperative period, possibly altering standard of care for this patient population.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ultrasound assessment of heart and lungs
Patients (over the age of 18) who will be undergoing surgery for hip fracture repair. These patients will receive an ultrasound of the heart and lungs to determine whether or not information gained from this ultrasound assessment is significant enough to influence their anesthetic care plan.
Diagnostic Test: Ultrasound assessment of heart and lungs
Patients will receive an ultrasound assessment of their heart and lungs.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Alteration of Anesthesia route, monitoring and fluid management during anesthetic care [ Time Frame: Several hours prior to surgery, an average of 3 hours ]
    We will evaluate how often information gained from performing an ultrasound assessment of the heart and lungs of patients scheduled for hip fracture repair prior to surgery will produce data that is significant enough to alter the monitoring plan and fluid management plan that is part of anesthesia care for this procedure.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: Time to discharge, an average of 2 days ]
    Patient length of stay will be evaluated

  2. Postoperative complications [ Time Frame: Time to discharge, an average of 2 days ]
    Complications such as cardiac, respiratory and acute kidney injury, blood transfusion will be evaluated for enrolled patients.

  3. Anesthesiologist satisfaction with using ultrasound to assess hip fracture patients in the perioperative period [ Time Frame: Conclusion of surgical procedure, an average length of 3 hours ]
    Anesthesiologist's satisfaction with the US-based perioperative information and how significant they feel this informoation is in developing the patient's anesthetic care plan will be evaluated via the completion of a questionnaire.
