The actual calculated sample size was 27 in each group, by taking time to achieve Modified Aldrete Score
of 9 from other published clinical trials (Jindal et al),  was taken with effect size 0.
The time from the cessation of anaesthetic gases until a modified Aldrete score
(MAS) > 9 was reached was recorded as the recovery time.
6 Which of the following parameters are excluded from the modified Aldrete score
in post anesthesia units?
A modified aldrete score
system was used to evaluate recovery while Pain/Discomfort scale to assess the quality of emergence from anesthesia.
The time to recovery from anaesthesia and to achieve satisfactory Aldrete score
were also noted.
In the following the modified Aldrete score
(17) of the patient was obtained to evaluate the possibility to bypass the recovery room.
01 taking into an account mean recovery characteristics, sedation scores (time to modified Aldrete score
> 9 mins.
Children were discharged if they met standardised discharge criteria of stable airway patency, a return to pre-MRI level of vital signs and consciousness, and a minimum Aldrete score
of 8 or greater.
Children were sent into the PACU and scored by scoring system for emergence agitation (SSEA) modified Aldrete score
the Children's and Infants' Postoperative Pain Scale (CHIPPS) score10 and visual analogue scales for satification (VASS).
In the PACU, a modified Aldrete score
(11), QoR score, presence or absence of nausea, vomiting, headache, drowsiness or dizziness before discharge, and time to hospital discharge were recorded.
The postoperative discharge criteria were assessed basing on Aldrete score
at first and second hour and a score of 9/10 was considered adequate for discharge from the post-anaesthesia recovery room, the patient satisfaction score was assessed by The IOWA Satisfaction with Anaesthesia Scale (ISAS), a self-administered questionnaire for evaluating a Patient's satisfaction with monitored anaesthesia care received.
Ramsey Sedation Scale (RSS) Modified Aldrete Score
(MASS) and Visual Analogue Scale Pain Score (VAS) of 0-10 (0= no pain and 10= worst imaginable pain) of the patients were evaluated in post operative 0 15 30 and 60th minutes.
