REBEL Core Cast 47.0 Nausea and Vomiting

Take Home Points

  • Nausea and Vomiting has an exceedingly large differential – don’t just anchor on GI presentations
  • H&P important – Duration, frequency, content, and associated symptoms
  • Alcohol swab -> If no line and want quick treatment give swab
  • Ondansetron -> oral you can give without hesitation but if giving IV check QTC / electrolytes and give slowly
  • Droperidol / Haloperidol -> Works really well, QTc prolongation has been overhyped and dont give to parkinsons patient.
