About

The investigators want to investigate the effect of anaesthesia, on the ability to maintain upright posture immediately after surgery in mamma cancer patients. The investigators hypothesis is, that a standard anaesthesia does not effect the ability to maintain upright posture right after surgery.

Full description

It is known, that patients undergoing major surgery have problems maintaining upright posture after major surgery. This can be due to fall in bloodpressure, with symptoms like dizziness, nausea/vomiting and fainting. With this investigation, we want to prove that anaesthesia is not the decisive factor, in patients ability to maintain upright posture after surgery.
