Active Comparator: Antiemetic anesthesia protocol
Scopolamine 1.5 milligram(mg) patch Propofol infusion remifentanil infusion 250mg erythromycin po for 2 doses Solumedrol 0.625mg IV droperidol 4mg IV Ondansetron Ketorolac 30mg IV ibuprofen 600mg po q6h Fentanyl Hydrocodone/Tylenol po
Other: Antiemetic anesthesia protocol
Intervention group consisted of patients undergoing maxillary osteotomy who received an antiemetic protocol designed to provide multimodal antiemetic therapy which have been shown to help prevent and/or treat postoperative nausea, combined with the elimination of anesthetic factors that may contribute to postoperative nausea and vomiting.
- Post-operative Nausea [ Time Frame: End of surgery to discharge from hospital ]End of surgery time determined by anesthesia portion of the medical record. PONV to be assessed by review of surgeons' and nurses' notes in the medical record as well as through review of patient diaries. Vomiting constitutes a safety issue and, as such, associated adverse events will be noted.
- Post-operative Vomiting [ Time Frame: End of surgery to discharge from hospital ]
- Hospital Length of Stay [ Time Frame: Anesthesia start time to placement of hospital discharge order - average 26 - 28 hours ]Anesthesia start time determined from anesthesia portion of the medical record. Time at which discharge order was placed will serve as time of discharge.
- Post-discharge Nausea [ Time Frame: 1 week from discharge from hospital ]To be assessed based on patient diary completed daily for 1 week following discharge to home from the hospital
- Post-discharge Vomiting [ Time Frame: 1 week post discharge ]
