- Post-anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) Pain Scores [ Time Frame: 30 mins after surgery ]Hannallah et al developed the Objective Pain Scale (OPS) to monitor pain in children after surgery. Parameters: (1) systolic blood pressure, (2) crying, (3) movement, (4) agitation (confused, excited), (5) complains of pain (may not be possible in younger children). Interpretation: minimum score: 0; maximum score: 10; maximum score if too young to complain of pain: 8; the higher the score, the greater the degree of pain.
- Intraoperative End-tidal Isoflurane % [ Time Frame: 1 1/2 hr. ]Median end-tidal isoflurane concentration per participant during the average 1 1/2 hr. surgery.
- Time to First Opioid Dose [ Time Frame: From PACU discharge until first opioid dose on the ward, assessed up to 24 hours ]Median time between PACU discharge and first opioid dose on the ward.
