The aim of this randomized, double-blind study is to compare parenteral pre-emptive oxycodone, morphine and dexamethasone with placebo in the treatment of postoperative pain in paediatric patients 4 to 12 years of age. The investigators hope to find out whether there are any differences in postoperative pain and/or adverse effects among these groups.
This study was designed to determine whether post-operative pain following a tonsillectomy can be reduced by adding an antacid-like medication to the medications taken after surgery. It is hypothesized that even a small amount of stomach acid backing up and entering the mouth can increase post-tonsillectomy pain. Therefore, the use of an antacid-like medication should help to decrease pain and reduce the amount of narcotic medication required for pain control.
The objective of this study is to examine the effects of pre surgery dog visits as compared to a costumed character or parents-only on the consumption of pain medication after surgery. It is hypothesized that pre surgery dog visits will reduce post surgical stress and anxiety.
