A prospective interview based survey on the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting of 1007 inpatients aged 1-80 years was conducted during 6 month period. Nausea, vomiting episodes and the need for anti-emetic medication were recorded for 24 hours postoperatively. The highest incidence of vomiting sequel was observed in neurosurgical patients. The most predictive factors associated with an increased risk for nausea and vomiting were: female gender (51/72), young age 19-35 year old, and body weight 61-80kg.
