There has been an increase in ambulatory surgical procedures performed across Canada; ambulatory procedures account for almost 70% of all surgeries. Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and pain are the most frequently reported adverse events by patients prior to discharge after ambulatory surgery. The incidence can be as high as 70 to 80% in high-risk patients.
PONV is a cause of morbidity particularly in gynecological procedures and the incidence of patients experiencing PONV is as high as 58-75%. Apart from delayed recovery, the occurrence of PONV has been linked to gastric aspiration, psychological distress and wound dehiscence. The occurrence of PONV delays patient discharge and further more is a leading cause of unexpected admission after ambulatory anesthesia
Promethazine, is an antiemetic medication that has been widely used over the last 50 years, and although effective at reducing PONV, it tends to cause sedation. In this study, we are trying to determine if a smaller dose of promethazine, in addition to the standard treatment for post-surgical nausea and vomiting, will be more beneficial than the standard treatment on its own.
It is hypothesized that the use of low dose promethazine (3 mg) as part of a multimodal antiemetic regimen will be efficacious in preventing PONV without the sedative effects of promethazine.

This was a trial comparing two commonly used medications for nausea and vomiting, ondansetron and promethazine, in the Emergency Department.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of promethazine on the antifungal minimum inhibitory concentrations against planktonic cells and mature biofilms of Candida tropicalis, as well as inve...
Several kinds of drugs have been investigated in preschool children as a preanesthetic sedation after various routes of administration for surgeries. This study aims to compare the efficacy of prometh...
Patients undergoing laparoscopic gynecological surgery are susceptible to postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). We hypothesized that a combination of epidural and general anesthesia to minimize in...

The removal of obstacles from the surgical field is a crucial aspect of any procedure in gynecological, urological or visceral laparoscopic surgery. Reliable instruments and skilled assistance are ess...
A phenothiazine derivative with histamine H1-blocking, antimuscarinic, and sedative properties. It is used as an antiallergic, in pruritus, for motion sickness and sedation, and also in animals.
A histamine H1 antagonist used in allergic reactions, hay fever, rhinitis, urticaria, and asthma. It has also been used in veterinary applications. One of the most widely used of the classical antihistaminics, it generally causes less drowsiness and sedation than PROMETHAZINE.
A phenothiazine with pharmacological activity similar to that of both CHLORPROMAZINE and PROMETHAZINE. It has the histamine-antagonist properties of the antihistamines together with CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM effects resembling those of chlorpromazine.
