Clinical Trial Summary

Acetaminophen is frequently used as an adjunct for pain management in pediatric surgical patients. The drug is available in an over the counter, inexpensive oral form as well as a considerably more expensive intravenous form. This study will compare opioid requirements and acetaminophen plasma levels post operatively for two dosing regimens to compare oral versus intravenous routes given pre operatively.

Clinical Trial Description

The primary purpose of this study is to compare opioid utilization in post-operative patients undergoing tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, between IV and PO acetaminophen. Secondarily, it will provide information regarding possible cost savings, pharmacokinetics and safety between these two regimens. ;
