Brief Summary: One of the most common complications after endotracheal intubation is sore throat Lidocaine jelly or spray, preoperative gargles with licorice or ketamine or I.V steroids used for prophylaxis against POST are expensive ,and having much more side effects,but nebulized lidocaine is easily found with decreasing cost ,easily administered ,acts immediately with short duration ,minimal side effects ,and no term residual side effects.

Nebulized ketamine was found to have a protective effect on allergen-induced airway inflammatory injury , high airway reactivity ,and decreasing postoperative sore throat (POST) incidence .

Magnesium sulfate is similar to ketamine in blocking the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors.
