In the present study patients belonging to a specific group had received nebulised fentanyl (4 mcg/kg) and IV saline whereas participants belonging to other group had received intravenous fentanyl (1 mcg/kg) and nebulized saline and postoperative analgesic efficacy was assessed using visual analog scale (VAS) score. The mean baseline heart rate of both the group and group was 91±7.76 and 94±5.48 respectively. The change observed in heart rate in both group over the period of time was almost same and the difference observed was statistically non-significant. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure differences were statistically significant in both groups however the difference noted was not clinically significant.
