Abstract

Nausea and vomiting are common problems in the care of the older palliative care patient. Depending on the population studied, incidence is as high as 60%. Distress associated with nausea and vomiting may be relieved in the majority of cases by careful determination of the underlying cause and selection of one or more antiemetic agents. Pathophysiology of nausea and vomiting involves complex interactions among multiple neurotransmitter systems. Antiemetic agents work via modulation of nuerotransmitter signalling. Pharmacologic agents are reviewed and geriatric dosing recommendations are made.
