Consensus Guidelines for the Management of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting
The present guidelines are the most recent data on postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) and an update on the 2 previous sets of guidelines published in 2003 and 2007. These guidelines wereExpand
Consensus Guidelines for Managing Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting
Evidence-based guidelines developed by an international panel of experts for the management of postoperative nausea and vomiting are presented. Expand
Prevention of Pain on Injection with Propofol: A Quantitative Systematic Review
In conclusion, IV lidocaine (0.5 mg/kg) should be given with a rubber tourniquet on the forearm, 30 to 120 s before the injection of propofol, and will prevent pain in approximately 60% of the patients treated in this manner. Expand
Dexamethasone for the Prevention of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Quantitative Systematic Review
It is very likely that the best prophylaxis of postoperative nausea and vomiting currently available is achieved by combining dexamethasone with a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist. Expand
Cannabinoids for control of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting: quantitative systematic review
The cannabinoids tested in these trials may be useful as mood enhancing adjuvants for controlling chemotherapy related sickness and potentially serious adverse effects, even when taken short term orally or intramuscularly are likely to limit their widespread use. Expand
Efficacy, Dose‐Response, and Safety of Ondansetron in Prevention of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Quantitative Systematic Review of Randomized Placebo‐controlled Trials
If the risk of PONV is very high, for every 100 patients receiving an adequate dose of ondansetron 20 patients will not vomit and three will have a headache who would not have had these adverse effects without the drug. Expand
A systematic review of antidepressants in neuropathic pain
Antidepressants are effective in relieving neuropathic pain and it is still unclear which drug class should be first choice, with very similar results for anticonvulsants. Expand
Complications of central venous catheters: Internal jugular versus subclavian access—A systematic review
There are more arterial punctures but less catheter malpositions with the internal jugular compared with the subclavian access and there is no evidence of any difference in the incidence of hemato- or pneumothorax and vessel occlusion. Expand
Are self-collected samples comparable to physician-collected cervical specimens for human papillomavirus DNA testing? A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Self-sampling was as sensitive as physician-obtained sampling to detect HR-HPV or HPV DNA and may be a suitable alternative method for studies on HPV transmission and vaccine trials. Expand
Does Multimodal Analgesia with Acetaminophen, Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs, or Selective Cyclooxygenase-2 Inhibitors and Patient-controlled Analgesia Morphine Offer Advantages over Morphine
There is evidence that the combination of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs with patient-controlled analgesia morphine offers some advantages over morphine alone, and a decrease in morphine consumption is not a good indicator of the usefulness of a supplemental analgesic. Expand
