BACKGROUND Untreated, one third of patients who undergo surgery will have postoperative nausea and vomiting. Although many trials have been conducted, the relative benefits of prophylactic antiemetic interventions given alone or in combination remain unknown. METHODS In a randomized, controlled trial of factorial design, 5,199 patients at high risk for(More)
Even nowadays every third or fourth patient suffers from postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) after general anaesthesia with volatile anaesthetics. There is now strong evidence that volatile anaesthetics are emetogenic and that there are no meaningful differences between halothane, enflurane, isoflurane, sevoflurane, and desflurane in this respect.(More)
Routine use of a nasogastric (NG) tube has been suggested to prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) despite conflicting data. Accordingly, we tested the hypothesis that routine use of a NG tube does not reduce PONV. Our work is based on data from a large trial of 4055 patients initially designed to quantify the effectiveness of combinations of(More)
There are no consensus guidelines for the management of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) in German speaking countries. This meeting was intended to develop such guidelines on which individual health care facilities can derive their specific standard operating procedures (SOPs). Anesthesiologists reviewed published literature on key topics which were(More)
Ohne eine entsprechende Prophylaxe leidet ein Drittel aller Patienten nach einer Operation an Übelkeit und/oder Erbrechen („postoperative nausea and vomiting“, PONV). Ziel der vorliegenden Untersuchung war die systematische Bestimmung der Effektivität einer antiemetischen Prophylaxe mit Einzelmaßnahmen und ihrer Kombination in einem faktoriellen Design, das(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We investigated the prevalence of lifestyle risk factors in patients admitted to our preoperative assessment outpatient clinic, and compared patient self-reports and anesthetist reports of health risk factors to evaluate the patient self-image of preoperative health status. DESIGN Cross-sectional survey. SETTING The study was performed(More)
Cardiac arrest during cesarean section is very rare. Obstetrical teams have low exposure to these critical situations necessitating frequent rehearsal and knowledge of its differential diagnosis and treatment. A 40-year-old woman pregnant with triplets underwent cesarean sections because of vaginal bleeding due to a placenta previa at 35.2 weeks of(More)
AIMS To investigate the feasibility, safety and efficacy of the Nurse-Driven Diabetes In-Hospital Treatment protocol (N-DIABIT), which consists of nurse-driven correctional therapy, in addition to physician-guided basal therapy, and is carried out by trained ward nurses. METHODS Data on 210 patients with diabetes consecutively admitted in the 5-month(More)

Bislang existieren für den deutschen Sprachraum keine expertenbasierten Handlungsempfehlungen zur Vermeidung oder Therapie von „postoperative nausea and vomiting“ (postoperative Übelkeit und Erbrechen, PONV). Ziel war daher die Entwicklung von Empfehlungen, aus denen im klinikspezifischen Kontext „standard operating procedures“ (SOPs) abgeleitet werden(More)
