Letter to the Editor
An anesthesiologist tried isopropyl alcohol for my post-op nausea and vomiting as suggested by Dustin Ballard, MD, and David Vinson, MD. (“Nauseated Patient? Inhaled Isopropanol Does the Job,” EMN 2019;41:31; http://bit.ly/2Xl89C0.)
I immediately vomited all over him. I found the odor to be an incredible trigger to my chemoreceptor trigger zone.
