Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting

The term Postoperative nausea and vomiting is typically used to describe nausea and/or vomiting or retching in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) and in the immediate 24 postoperative hours. Postdischarge nausea and vomiting (PDNV) refers to symptoms that occur after discharge for outpatient procedures. Postoperative vomiting (POV) is usually measured and discussed in children, rather than PONV, because nausea may be difficult to assess in young children.
