Comparing Oxygen Saturation in Post Anesthesia Care Unit After Different Methods of Pain Relief
To determine the which method of pain relief is better after current anesthesia care.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Oxygen Saturation During Transfer From Operating Room to Post Anesthesia Care Unit After Current Anesthesia Care|
|Study Start Date:||March 2003|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Group 1 received a presurgical caudal block and group 2 received a intravenous narcotics.
We hypothesized that in children, the current anesthesia care (combined light general anesthesia and caudal analgesia) may decrease incidence of intra and or postoperative de-saturation( SaO2 < %95), the need of oxygen during child's transport to the PACU and during his stay in the recovery room, compared with children who receive intravenous narcotics for intra and postoperative pain relief.
