V OMITING is a complicated act which involves the coordinated activities of many motor systems of the body including both the somatic and autonomic nervous outflows. The orderly sequential action of the different muscle groups used in emesis has been clearly demonstrated by the now classical work of Cannon (I). Equally complex is the question of the sensory pathways of vomiting. The roles of the numerous afferents investigated by various workers on this problem are not in agreement. Our…

Delineation of vagal emetic pathways: intragastric copper sulfate-induced emesis and viral tract tracing in musk shrews.

TLDR
The data indicate that the contribution of vagal pathways to intragastric CuSO4-induced emesis is dose dependent in musk shrews, and the current neural tracing data suggest brain stem anatomical circuits that are activated by GI signaling in themusk shrew.
Effects of emetic and cathartic agents on the gastrointestinal tract and the treatment of toxic ingestion.

TLDR
More active research is urged to characterize the gastrointestinal emetic response and to investigate more generally the therapeutic value of emesis in the treatment of toxic ingestion to demonstrate the value in various poison cases and help establish criteria for use and selection of emetic drugs.
Vomiting: Neural Mechanisms and Control by Chlorpromazine
TLDR
Current concepts of the vomiting act are described, the physiologic background of these concepts are reviewed, the clinical evidence of the antiemetic properties of chlorpromazine is presented, and the experimental data in regard to the method of action of this drug are reviewed.
Gastric Emptying
TLDR
A review of the various clinical options used to elicit gastric emptying, viz. drug-induced emesis, mechanical pharyngeal stimulation, gastric lavage, and catharsis finds that apomorphine and syrup of ipecac are the most frequently used drugs for induction of emesis.
Nausea and vomiting

TLDR
Vomiting is a biologically ancient protective function designed to rid the body of noxious ingested materials but like a number of such primitive safeguards its purpose is subject to perversion by a great variety of disease states and functional derangements.
Respiratory mechanics of vomiting in decerebrate cats.
TLDR
Results obtained with spinal cord section at T, and phrenicotomy support the conclusions that the diaphragm, acting in concert with the inspiratory muscles against a closed glottis, is responsible for the negative intrathoracic pressure produced in retching; and that the abdominal musculature isresponsible for the positive pressure generated in the abdomen during retching and expulsion.
Studies on mechanism of retching and vomiting in dogs
TLDR
Both the retching and/or vomiting act and the abnormal myoelectric activity which were induced by dopamine and by copper sulfate were prevented by intravenous administration of a peripheral dopamine blocker, domperidone, 5 mg, in 100% and 70%, respectively.
