Brief Summary:
The investigators aim to compare intranasal dexmedetomidine in a dose of with sublingual ketorolac in a dose of on postoperative behaviour in those children undergoing BMT during their PACU stay

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Elective Bilateral Myringotomy Drug: intranasal dexmedetomidine Drug: sublingual ketorolac Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Data were analyzed through SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences), Program version 22. Distribution of data was first tested by Shapiro test. Data were presented as the mean and standard deviation (SD), median and range or numbers and percentages. For normally distributed data, an unpaired t-test was used to compare between mean values of both groups. For pain and sedation scores, Mann Whitney U test was used. Fisher's exact test was used for comparison of categorical data. The P value ≤ 0.05 was considered as the level of statistical significance.

A prior G power analysis was done. Using the results obtained from previous studies (14- 18) and assuming an alpha error of 0.05 and beta error 0f 0.2 (power of the study 80 %), a sample size of 60 patients per group was calculated. A drop out 10% of cases is expected, so; 33 cases per group will be required

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: intranasal dexmedetomidine
this group is planned for intranasal dexmedetomidine
Drug: intranasal dexmedetomidine
The patient will receive intranasal dexmedetomidine in a dose of in a volume of 1 ml was dripped into both nostrils using a 1-mL syringe, with the patients in the recumbent position plus 1ml sublingual 0.9% saline

Active Comparator: sublingual ketorolac
this group is planned for sublingual ketorolac
Drug: sublingual ketorolac
The patient will receive sublingual ketorolac in a dose of 0.5 in a volume of 1 ml and 1 ml intranasal saline 0.9%

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. duration of analgesia [ Time Frame: time from administering the study solution till the time for the first rescue analgesic] during first 24 hours ]
    The duration of analgesia,define as the time to the first demand for rescue analgesic

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Postoperative pain score [ Time Frame: For 24 hours after surgery ]
    Postoperative pain will be assessed by the CHEOP scale (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Pain Scale) .

  2. Heart rate [ Time Frame: for 2 hours after the start of surgery ]
  3. systolic blood pressure [ Time Frame: for 2 hours after the start of surgery ]
  4. Number of patients received rescue analgesics [ Time Frame: For 24 hours after surgery ]
    Total number of children who required postoperative pain medication during the 24-h period will be registered

  5. Degree of sedation [ Time Frame: For 24 hours after surgery ]
    The degree of sedation will be assessed by using Ramsay scale

  6. Nausea and vomiting [ Time Frame: For 24 hours after surgery ]
