Ensure Surgery Patients Get Antiemetic Meds at the Right Times
Up to one in three surgery patients have postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV)...a side effect some fear more than pain.
Anesthesia is infamous for causing nausea and vomiting...but giving the right antiemetic meds at the right times lowers the risk.
Expect many surgery patients to get more than one antiemetic to prevent PONV. Combining meds from different classes boosts effectiveness.
