Management of postoperative nausea and vomiting

Consensus guidelines for the management of postoperative nausea and vomiting / T.J. Gan  ... et al.  Anesthesia & analgesia. 2014; 118(1): 85-113

These guidelines were compiled by a multidisciplinary international panel of individuals with interest and expertise in PONV ... These guidelines identify patients at risk for PONV in adults and children; recommend approaches for reducing baseline risks for PONV; identify the most effective antiemetic single therapy and combination therapy regimens for PONV prophylaxis, including nonpharmacologic approaches; recommend strategies for treatment of PONV when it occurs; provide an algorithm for the management of individuals at increased risk for PONV as well as steps to ensure PONV prevention and treatment are implemented in the clinical setting.
