Levomepromazine for the treatment of nausea and vomiting in people with advanced disease | Cochrane

This is an update of the review published in 2013. Nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick) are common and unpleasant symptoms that are often experienced by people with advanced disease. There are several different drug therapies which are available to treat these symptoms, known as antiemetics. Levomepromazine was originally used to treat schizophrenia but is also used to control nausea and vomiting. It can be given as a tablet or as an injection.

Cannabis-based medicine for nausea and vomiting in people treated with chemotherapy for cancer | Cochrane

Background As many as three-quarters of people who receive chemotherapy experience nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick), which many find distressing. While conventional anti-sickness medicines are effective, they do not work for everyone, all of the time. Therapeutic drugs based on the active ingredient of cannabis, known as THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), have been approved for use as anti-sickness medicines in some countries.

Effect of applying cricoid pressure during rapid sequence induction of general anaesthesia | Cochrane

Rapid sequence induction (RSI) is a technique used by critical care clinicians, mainly anaesthetists, intensive care physicians and emergency physicians, when setting out to secure a clear airway for a general anaesthetic and the patient is thought to be at risk of vomiting their stomach contents into their airway and down into their lungs. Stomach contents in the lungs can cause infection of the lung and, in severe cases, death. Cricoid pressure is a technique where pressure is placed on an area of bone-like tissue in the neck to flatten the oesophagus (tube that connects the mouth to the stomach). This is intended to prevent vomiting up of the stomach contents. The application of cricoid pressure for this purpose is very common. It is, however, a controversial practice as some clinicians and researchers believe it to be ineffective. It may also interfere with the clinician's view of the patient's airway.

Is parental report of "child acting abnormally" as the only symptom worrisome for TBI?

I’ve previously written about clinically important traumatic brain injuries (ciTBI) a number of times. After the initial publication of the landmark PECARN ciTBI study in 2009 there have been several secondary analyses looking at individual isolated symptoms. See here for isolated loss of consciousness and risk of ciTBI and here for isolated vomiting and risk of ciTBI. A recent study in JAMA Pediatrics looked at isolated parental/guardian report of the child acting abnormally.
