Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The aim of this project is to assess the abiltiy of the anaesthetist to estimate volume status of the patient utilising traditional clinical methods, when compared to measurements obtained by transthoracic echocardiography. A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is done at baseline (before the spinal anaestheisa is performed), immediately after spinal anesthesia is performed and after the hip replacement surgery is complete.
