Abstract:
Post-operative pain is a prevalent occurrence following surgery, often remaining undiagnosed and undertreated in numerous cases. The goal here is to examine if appropriate combination of analgesics is given according to the pain score in the management of postoperative pain and to observe prescribing patterns of analgesics in patients after open hernia surgery. Patient data, encompassing variables such as age, gender, duration of stay and pain score, was obtained from the medical records department. Additionally, information regarding the medication administered during the hospitalization periods and after the discharge was included. The purpose of this study is to examine which class of analgesics serves as the better option for relieving the pain in patients when compared to other medications after the open hernia surgery. In the present study, it was concluded that the most prescribed combination therapy was Paracetamol along with Tramadol followed by Paracetamol with Diclofenac. This particular approach demonstrated significant efficacy when compared to the other prescribed combinations.
