Table 4 Requirement for rescue antiemetics and the frequency of complete response to administrated rescue antiemetics

From: The effectiveness of ramosetron and ondansetron for preventing postoperative nausea and vomiting after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair: a randomized controlled trial

  Ramosetron (n = 39) Ondansetron (n = 43) Control (n = 40) P value
Rescue antiemetics 9 (23)* 14 (33) 20 (50) 0.039
 0–6 h 9 (23) 10 (23) 15 (38) 0.253
 6–24 h 4 (10) 8 (19) 12 (30) 0.085
 24–48 h 1 (3) 1 (2) 2 (5) 0.840
Complete response 37 (95) 39 (91) 36 (90) 0.772
 0–6 h 25 (64) 24 (56) 21 (53) 0.562
 6–24 h 32 (82) 32 (74) 20 (50) 0.005
 24–48 h 37 (95) 39 (91) 35 (88) 0.534
  1. Values are numbers of patients (percentage)
  2. The complete response was defined as no additional postoperative nausea and vomiting nor the requirement for rescue antiemetics
  3. *p < 0.05 compared with group C
  4. p < 0.05 compared with the other two groups
