- Brief summaryA lot of times the anaesthesia used during surgery leaves a foul taste in the mouth and a sore throat as side effect. Recently a hospital announced that they give patients ice cream after surgery because “it improves the wellbeing of the patient after recovery”. It seemed that this conclusion was not based after any rigid scientific research but on observations only. Patients who underwent surgery after general anaesthesia postoperative mostly complain about a sore throat and a foul taste. The sore throat is caused by the intubation and the foul smell is caused by the anaesthesia damps. Careful insertion techniques for both the tracheal tube and laryngeal mask are of importance in the prevention of airway trauma and postoperative sore throat Despite this, the problems of sore throat and foul smell still is a complaint of many patients. After a search in PubMed we did not find any study describing the effect of ice on the quality of recovery. Only the use of ice after tonsillectomy is described. We hypothesize that offering patient after bariatric surgery water ice cream will reduce the side effects of sore throat and foul smell and in general increase the quality of recovery.
