Antiemetics used 4 (3.9%) 1 (0.9%) 0.195
Analgesics used 1 (1%) 3 (2.7%) 0.623
Time to extubation (min) 25 (16) 25 (13) 0.922

  1. Requirement for antiemetics and analgesics, severe dry mouth, facial flushing and drowsiness are expressed as number (%), and compared by Fisher’s exact test between normal saline group and penehyclidine group. Time to extubation and length of stay in PACU are expressed as medium (IQR) and compared by Mann-Whitney U test between groups. PACU, post-anesthesia care unit
