Nausea and vomiting (particularly nausea) can be a very debilitating symptom. Nausea can be accompanied by the autonomic symptoms of cold sweats, tachycardia and diarrhoea. It is usually multi-factorial, requiring a thorough assessment and an understanding of the pathophysiology of likely causes, the neuro-transmitters involved and the mechanism of action of the different anti-emetics used.
This new clinical case for Nausea & Vomiting will help you to identify the common causes, the different pathways and neuro-transmitters involved, introduce you to the different anti-emetics used and their side effects, as well as providing you a pharmacological framework to approach nausea and vomiting.
