The effect of premedication with budesonide aerosol inhalation on the incidence of respiratory adverse events during anesthesia recovery period in pediatric patients

Objective: We aimed to investigate the influence of premedication with budesonide aerosol inhalation on the incidence of respiratory adverse events during anesthesia recovery period in pediatric patients.

Method: 120 pediatric patients underwent elective surgery of inguinal hernia repair were enrolled in the study. They were given two different types of anesthesia, group A received general anesthesia with the Laryngeal Mask (LMA), and group B were treated with budesonide aerosol inhalation preoperatively before general anesthesia with LMA. The incidence of adverse events which included laryngospasm, respiratory tract infection, the length of Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) staying, the volume of throat secretions and hoarseness were monitored closely.

Results: Compared with group A, group B had a lower incidence of respiratory adverse events.

Conclusion: Preoperative budesonide aerosol inhalation could reduce the incidence of respiratory adverse events during the anesthesia recovery period in children.
