Abstract


Pain relief after surgical procedures continues to be a major medical challenge. The alleviation of pain is given a high priority by the medical
profession and health authorities. However, although there is no reason why a pa¬tient should not receive appropriate analgesia, recent sur¬veys
have revealed that the incidence of moderate or even severe postoperative pain may be as high as 30¬-70%. After institutional and ethics committee
approval and informed consent 60 patient of either sex of ASA physical status I and II aged between 20-60 years undergoing elective abdominal
surgery were enrolled for the study and were randomly assigned to 3 groups of 30 each. From the present study it is concluded that preemptively
administered IV paracetamol 1gm in patients undergoing elective lower abdominal surgery has no adverse effect ensure effective analgesia post
operatively decrease tramadol consumption, side effects and need for rescue analgesia.
