This study aims to determine if there is an association between caregiver's pre-operative anxiety and children's post-operative pain in a lower-middle income country (LMIC) setting. METHODS: In this cross-sectional, descriptive study, we recruited 76 children aged 4 to 12 years, undergoing elective ambulatory tonsillectomy or adenotonsillectomy. Primary caregivers completed validated measures of anxiety (the Beck Anxiety Inventory [BAI] and the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale [K10]) prior to the children undergoing surgery. Post-operative pain was measured using the Wong Baker Faces Pain Rating Scale 4 hours afte...

This article presents the case of a child aged 2 years and 7 months with CS scheduled for bilateral tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. The patient had a difficult procedure of extubation and was reintubated and the tracheal intubation was removed 2 days after surgery. The CS is a rare condition with physical characteristics that can result in difficult airway manipulation. It is important for anesthesiologists to recognize and avoid potential airway complications in the management of such patients through detailed preoperative evaluation and careful observation after surgery to reduce perioperative r...

AbstractAlthough one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in children and frequently performed as outpatient surgery, the postoperative course following tonsillectomy may include nausea, vomiting, poor oral intake, and pain. These problems may last days into the postoperative course. Although opioids may be used to treat the pain, comorbid conditions such as obstructive sleep apnea may mandate limiting the dose and the frequency of administration. Adjunctive agents may improve the overall postoperative course of patients and limit the need for opioid analgesics. Dexamethasone is a frequently administered intr...

ConclusionThis study showed that peritonsillar infiltration of tramadol or ketamine were not superior to placebo in reducing post-operative pain in children undergone adenotonsillectomy. The use of tramadol increased the risk of nausea and vomit between 2 and 6 h after surgery.

7-year-old girl dies during tonsillectomy A 7-year-old South Carolina girl died one minute into surgery to remove her tonsils, her parents told CNN affiliate WHNS. www.cnn.com They specifically say she arrested 1 minute into surgery. Anaphylaxis maybe? MH? Surgeon injected local directly into a vessel? Details are sparse but it’s tragic. As safe as anesthesia and surgery have become, the **** we do is still dangerous as hell.
