The management of nausea and vomiting requires an understanding of the probable mechanism and logical consideration of drug selection. But it also requires an approach that is individualized to the emotional and psychological needs of the child and family. This chapter examines the pathophysiology of vomiting, alongside guidelines for management and antiemetic therapy. Medications for use to control the symptoms of nausea and vomiting are covered, as well as guidance on exploring and managing the expectations of the patient and family.
