The main goal of the present study was to assess the effect of nebulized ketamine for decreasing the post-operative sore throat in the general anaesthetic patients Group A received a saline nebulisation 5.0 ml and Group Bs received ketamine 50 mg (1.0 ml) (with 4.0 ml of the saline) nebulisation. The primary outcome of the study was to measure the incidence of POST at 4 h post‑operatively in adult patients undergoing surgery of duration of up to 1 h under GA. The Post-operative sore throat is seen more controlled in the Ketamine nebulized patients. The time for the recovery if fast as compared to normal group patients. The age in the preent study was observed in the range of 20-60 years. In the Group A duration of surgery was observed for 40-50 mins where as in Group B 45-53 mins. The use of pre‑operative ketamine nebulisation reduced the incidence and severity of POST during early post‑operative period in patients receiving GA with tracheal intubation.
