Medicines in the treatment of emergency department nausea and vomiting | Cochrane

Nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick) is a common symptom in people in emergency departments, and can result from a number of different causes. In addition to being distressing, it can lead to other problems such as dehydration (where the body is losing more fluid than it is taking in). Medicines to treat nausea have been useful in other settings, such as after operations, although it is not known what is the best medicine for people in emergency departments.

A young woman presenting with severe headache

A 20 year old woman with a history of migraine with visual aura in the form of both positive (fortification spectrum) and negative features was admitted to hospital because of unilateral pulsatile right sided headache of one day’s duration. The headache was associated with photophobia, intense nausea and vomiting, right sided facial and upper arm numbness, and a right sided temporal visual field defect. She described the headache as similar to her habitual migraines in character but “the worst ever.” On examination she was normotensive and her Glasgow coma scale was 15. On neurological examination the visual field defect was confirmed and she reported reduction in light touch over the right side of her face and right upper limb.

Drug treatment of adults with nausea and vomiting in primary care

A usually healthy 25 year old man presents to you as his general practitioner at 9 am. He has had fluctuating nausea with four vomits and one loose stool overnight, associated with colicky central abdominal pain. No blood was present in the vomit or stool, and he reports that his girlfriend was recently diagnosed as having “viral gastro.” He is afebrile, intermittently uncomfortable, but otherwise well, with mild epigastric tenderness but no guarding or rebound. Clinically, you believe viral gastroenteritis is the most likely cause of his symptoms, and you consider his request for treatment that will help to stop his vomiting so that he can get to his evening shift at a factory.

An elderly woman with postprandial abdominal pain

An 84 year old woman presented with a five month history of central, recurrent, severe epigastric pain, which occurred about 20 minutes after eating. This was associated with nausea, occasional diarrhoea, and vomiting. She had experienced early satiety and weight loss over the last few months. Her medical history included myocardial infarction two years earlier. She also had a 40 pack year history of smoking. On examination, she was cachectic, but physical examination and digital rectal examination were otherwise unremarkable. Blood tests—including full blood count, liver functions tests, amylase, and renal function—were normal. Chest and abdominal radiographs, abdominal ultrasound, and computed tomography of the abdomen were unremarkable. Computed tomography angiography was performed (fig 1⇓).

Intravenous infusion of lidocaine starting at the time of surgery for reduction of pain and improvement of recovery after surgery | Cochrane

The most common problems immediately following surgery are pain, nausea and vomiting, excessive blood clotting, slowing or stopping of the movement of food and fluid through the digestive system, and postoperative cognitive dysfunction. Fast-track protocols aim to prevent or reduce these complications and speed up early recovery. Opioid medications that are given to reduce the postoperative pain can be associated with side effects including nausea and constipation, which prevent a smooth recovery. Other options include the administration of epidural opioid medications (injected into the space surrounding the spinal cord). The pain can be a mixture of inflammatory and neuropathic pain or based on increased sensitivity to pain. All are helped by intravenous lidocaine, which is a non-opioid local pain medication or local anaesthetic.
