Abstract: 

Introduction: Tremor is usually seen among 5-75% of patients after different kinds of surgical operation and it makes a complex situation for both patients and anesthetically specialists. The previous studies show that in patients with by-pass surgery, dexamethason consumption causes tremor reduction after surgical operations. The aim of this study was assessment of dexamethason consumption effects on tremor reduction after surgical operations.
Methods: This research was a double blind clinical trial. We randomly chose 184 patients whom suffered orthopedic, urological or general surgeries. Half of them treated with dexametason (0.15%kg) and the other half treated with placebo (distilled water). The results were compared and analyzed between two groups, using Spss software and t-student test.
Results: In this study 39% of patients were female and 61% were male. 46 of them had general surgery, 26% had orthopedic and 28% had urological surgery. In dexamethason treated group, tremor rate after surgery was 12% and in placebo group was 8% (No statistical significant difference was seen n<0.05).
Conclusion: In the present study, low dose dexamethason treatment had no effects on tremor reduction after different kinds of surgeries. We also didn't find any relation between tremor and sex of patients.
