Postoperative nausea and vomiting is an increasingly common and distressing problem faced by patients undergoing anesthesia that negatively affects their recovery and wellbeing and can result in significant increases in healthcare costs. Effective treatment strategies and relevant, up-to-date guidance are essential to manage postoperative nausea and vomiting in the perioperative setting. This practical, concise guide to the subject offers information on the history and mechanisms of postoperative nausea and vomiting, assessing and identifying risk factors, providing appropriate pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment options, and implementing successful management strategies to tackle this issue. As a uniquely comprehensive study of the topic that provides much more detail than a chapter in a general anaesthesia textbook, this is an invaluable resource for anesthetists and physicians managing patients post-surgery.
The growing challenge of postoperative nausea and vomiting means that specific knowledge and management strategies are a vital aspect of perioperative care. This book provides practical help and advice on assessing PONV risk, providing appropriate prophylactic antiemetic therapy, and managing patients who fail antiemetic prophylaxis.
Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Practical Guide provides the reader with a concise yet comprehensive understanding of where we were, where we are, and potentially where we are going with the management of PONV. There are clear areas for expansion presented toward the end of the book, where the concepts of cost-effectiveness, strength of evidence, and opportunities for lengthening the list of viable interventions are reviewed. In sum, the authors of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Practical Guide should be commended for establishing one of the higher quality evidence-based references for the evaluation and management of PONV.’ Michael C. Grant, Anesthesia and Analgesia
