Abstract

Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a common and potentially debilitating complication of surgery. The preoperative assessment of PONV using established risk assessment tools enables the identification of patients at risk and potentially decreases the incidence of PONV in adult surgical patients. The identification of risk factors associated with PONV and the factors that are independent predictors of PONV preoperatively can facilitate the effective prophylactic treatment and management of PONV in adult surgical patients.
