About

Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a fairly common side effect of general anesthesia which is caused by the mucosal injury and nerve compression associated with tracheal intubation or laryngeal mask airway device insertion. In this randomized study, the authors evaluate the effect of K-Y jelly-soaked nasopharyngeal packs on POST and postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients subjected to nasal surgery.

Full description

Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a fairly common side effect of general anesthesia which is caused by the mucosal injury and nerve compression associated with tracheal intubation or laryngeal mask airway device insertion. In this randomized study, the authors evaluate the effect of K-Y jelly-soaked nasopharyngeal packs on POST and postoperative nausea and vomiting in patients subjected to nasal surgery. The present double-blinded randomized controlled study was conducted at Al-Azhar University Hospitals, Cairo, Egypt. The study protocol was approved by the local ethical committee of Al-Azhar Faculty of Medicine and all patients provided informed consent before enrollment in the study.
