Early mobilization after surgery is crucial for an enhanced recovery and can reduce complications associated with immobility. Symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, blurred vision and dizziness are however known to impede early mobilization. Together these symptoms comprise orthostatic intolerance (OI), in which the ultimate manifestation is syncope. In reference to find preventive and relevant treatment for OI studies with a multimodal approach have shown promising results, though the pathophysiology behind OI is not fully understood.
