Although risk factors for postoperative nausea are generally assumed as being the same as those for vomiting, the present study made a clear distinction between the two events, considered as two different end points. To identify among preoperative and perioperative risk factors those predictive of postoperative nausea and vomiting, we fitted the bivariate Dale model to the data set by including all covariates, namely, gender, age, BMI, nonsmoking status, history of migraine and of PONV, type of anesthesia, and duration and type of surgery (using ENT as the reference group). Among anesthesia-related factors, maintenance of anesthesia with propofol did not alter the risk for nausea and/or vomiting (P = 0.61). In table 4, a detailed distribution of postoperative nausea and/or vomiting is given according to type of surgery. Andemeskel YM, Elsholz T, Gebreyohannes G, Tesfamariam EH. Patients undergoing gynecologic (32%), abdominal (26%), maxillofacial (27%), plastic (25%), neurosurgical (24%) and urological (19%) surgical procedures had the highest incidences of PONV. Patient-, anesthesia-, and surgery-related variables that were considered to have a possible effect on the proportion of patients experiencing postoperative nausea and/or vomiting were examined.

It contained characteristics assumed to be predictive for PONV (see Materials and Methods section, fourth paragraph). The survey was performed in a clinical audit setting. This literature shows that female gender post-puberty, nonsmoking status, history of PONV or motion sickness, childhood after infancy and younger adulthood, increasing duration of surgery, and use of volatile anesthetics, nitrous oxide, large-dose neostigmine, or intraoperative or postoperative opioids are well established PONV risk factors.

There was a strong association between the two outcomes. More than 25% of the patients had a history of PONV, motion sickness, or migraine. Factors related to postoperative nausea and vomiting. Nausea alone occurred in 73 (11%) patients, vomiting alone occurred in 13 (2%) patients, 53 (8%) patients suffered from both nausea and vomiting, while 532 (79%) were free from the complications. Mean time of vomiting episodes was estimated at 10.1 ± 11.4 postoperative hours. There was a highly significant association between the two outcomes. POSTOPERATIVE nausea and vomiting—usually summarized as PONV—remains one of the most common and distressing complications after surgery. Duration of anesthesia (general and locoregional) was 100 ± 66 min.

Our study gave detailed information on the time course of postoperative nausea and vomiting. In turn, the most complicated model incorporates all covariates for both outcomes. There was a clear relationship between nausea and vomiting. More importantly, in the full Dale model, the association parameter between nausea and vomiting was still highly significant (3.74 ± 0.54;P < 0.0001) but was unrelated to the covariates. To confirm the results of the present study, larger-scale trials using a similar methodological approach should be carried out, not only in other centers but also on other surgical patient populations, e.g. The proportion of nonsmokers was amounted to 63%.

Specifically, women are at greater risk of nausea (OR = 2.69; 1.38–5.24) and of vomiting (OR = 3.78; 1.51–9.50) than men. Upon arrival in the postanesthesia care unit, patients were asked by the nurse to rate their nausea experience on the VAS device. Risk Factors for Postoperative Nausea, Vomiting and Pruritus The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. A standardized follow-up survey of PONV incidence was performed over a 3-month period, including all surgical inpatients older than 15 yr who were able to read and understand French and were undergoing various elective surgical procedures: orthopedics, neurosurgery, vascular–thoracic, ophthalmology, maxillofacial, gynecology, urology, plastic, abdominal, stomatology, and ear, nose, and throat (ENT).

Apfel, C. C., et al. Recently, Tramèr 14proposed that nausea and vomiting should be reported and analyzed separately, considered as “two biologically different phenomena.” This is not an easy task since the two complications often occur together and are therefore highly correlated. PONV risk factors have been described in the literature since the late 1800s (20). 2020 Sep 15;2020:9792170. doi: 10.1155/2020/9792170. 29Review of the literature on anesthetic factors contributing to PONV is difficult because of a lack of standardization. Table 2. Postoperative nausea and vomiting results from patient factors, surgical & anesthetic factors. Conversely, among the 66 patients with vomiting, 53 (80%) had nausea.

A sample of 671 surgical patients with complete case report forms was included in the study. It should be noted that postoperative morphine doses were slightly more significantly associated with vomiting (OR = 1.02;P = 0.029) than with nausea (OR = 1.01;P = 0.05), while pain parameters were not significant. Postoperatively, pain VAS characteristics were the following: AUC (59 ± 69 cm × h), mean VAS (1.0 ± 1.1 cm), VASmax (3.9 ± 2.5 cm), the time of maximal VAS, Tmax (8.2 ± 13 h), and PVAS > 3 (6.1 ± 11.2 h). 1–3. 36Furthermore, nausea intensity was assessed using a VAS device as a secondary end point. In the Dale model, one has to estimate (1) the regression coefficients of the covariates for nausea, (2) the regression coefficients of the covariates for vomiting, and (3) the association parameter between nausea and vomiting. Recommendations for prevention and treatment, and research agenda. Vomiting is a complex reflex under the control of two functionally distinct medullar centers: the vomiting center in the dorsal portion of the lateral reticular formation and the chemoreceptor trigger zone in the area postrema of the floor of the fourth ventricle. Possible risk factors include history of migraine, history of PONV or motion sickness in a child's parent or sibling, better ASA physical status, intense preoperative anxiety, certain ethnicities or surgery types, decreased perioperative fluids, crystalloid versus colloid administration, increasing duration of anesthesia, general versus regional anesthesia or sedation, balanced versus total IV anesthesia, and use of longer-acting versus shorter-acting opioids. 2020 Nov 18;20(1):288. doi: 10.1186/s12871-020-01205-5. Statistical calculations were carried out by means of the SAS package (SAS Institute, Cary, NC; version 8 for Windows), always using all data available. Postoperative incidence rates of nausea and vomiting were estimated from the data. 1,32Postoperative pain did not influence nausea and vomiting. Details of anesthesia and surgery, as well as all postoperative events, were recorded on the same case report form that followed the patient during the survey. According to our current model, the brain structures involved in the pathophysiology of vomiting are distributed throughout the medulla oblongata of the brainstem, not centralized in an anatomically defined âvomiting centreâ.1Such structures include the chemoreceptor trigger zone (CRTZ), located at the caudal end of the fourth ventricle in the area postrema, and the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), located in the area postrema and lower pons. Possible risk factors include history of migraine, history of PONV or motion sickness in a child's parent or sibling, better ASA physical status, intense preoperative anxiety, certain ethnicities or surgery types, â¦ Author information: (1)Servicio de â¦ Thus, even when accounting for covariates, the two outcomes remained strongly dependent on each other (i.e. 13Administration of propofol for anesthesia induction and/or maintenance did not reduce the risk for early nausea or delayed vomiting in our surgical population. To control for postoperative factors, VAS pain parameters (AUC, mean VAS, VASmax, Tmax, and PVAS > 3) and analgesic drugs (morphine, paracetamol, and nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs) were also included in the Dale model. No relationships could be established with our results.

ASA = American Society of Anesthesiologists; BMI = body mass index; PONV = postoperative nausea and vomiting. History of migraine and a variety of surgeries (gynecological, abdominal, neurologic, ophthalmology, and maxillofacial) do or tend to influence nausea only. Some risk factors were predictive of both nausea and vomiting (female gender, nonsmoking status, and general anesthesia). Patient factors are also important â postoperative nausea and vomiting is three times more prevalent in adult females than in males, and children are around twice as susceptible as adults. Surgical factors that confer increased risk for PONV include procedures of increased length, gynecological, â¦ Background: To improve the efforts that try to detect the common risk factors of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV), this epidemiologic survey was designed to evaluate the present incidence of â¦ In some studies, analysis of PONV is restricted to vomiting, whereas in others, nausea, vomiting, and retching are recorded together. 2020 Dec 3;20(1):297. doi: 10.1186/s12871-020-01214-4. The distribution of patients according to type of surgery was as follows: orthopedics (141), neurosurgery (54), vascular (32), ophthalmology (8), maxillofacial (41), gynecology (69), urology (58), plastic (32), abdominal (184), stomatology (23), and ENT (29). Background: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a common complication after total hip/knee arthroplasty (THA/TKA) that affects patient satisfaction and postoperative recovery. Further research examining genetic and under-investigated clinical patient characteristics as potential risk factors, and involving outpatients and children, should improve predictive systems. 11,12only dealt with vomiting and did not try to predict nausea. They can be divided into patient factors, surgical factors, and anaesthetic factors. Postoperative nausea scores, expressed as area under the nausea–VAS time curve (AUC) was 2.9 ± 11.4 cm × h, mean VAS 0.32 ± 0.83 cm and VASmax 0.7 ± 1.8 cm. Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV), postoperative vomiting (POV), post-discharge nausea and vomiting (PDNV), and opioid-induced nausea and vomiting (OINV) continue to be causes of pediatric morbidity, delay in discharge, and unplanned hospital admission.
