Especially in outpatient surgery, PONV can prevent discharge or lead to unplanned readmission. Recent findings Evidence on prophylaxis and treatment of PONV is growing, but implementation remains poor. Summary A liberal, universal PONV management is now endorsed by the guidelines. Specific evidence concerning prevention and (at-home) treatment of PDNV is still scarce. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
