Description

Summary

This is a single site, prospective, randomized controlled study designed to evaluate the impact of acupressure when used as an initial treatment before rescue medications in the treatment of post-operative nausea and/or vomiting at UCD.

Official Title

Optimization of Post-Operative Therapy for Nausea or Vomiting

Details

Each individual will only participate in the post anesthetic care unit starting from when the patient's nurse or anesthesiology team deems that the patient needs treatment for PONV. It ends when the patient is discharged from anesthesiology care.

Patients will be asked to score nausea before randomized treatment of acupressure or medication, and to score nausea after treatment.
