This QI project identified an opioid sparing anesthesia approach for pediatric tonsillectomy and adenotonsillectomy that moved away from morphine and acetaminophen, though Dexmedetomidine plus Ibuprofen, and finally on to the most effective regime consisting of Dexmedetomidine plus Ketorolac.

The study highlights both the move away from opioid based anesthesia as well as the increasing use of Intraoperative Dexmedetomidine.
