Nursing interventions at postoperative nausea (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this literature overview was to illustrate evidence-based nursing interventions for postoperative nausea. This literature overview is based on five scientific articles that have been critically reviewed. All scientific articles have received approval of ethical formal joint research. The findings have shown that according to research, the non-pharmacological treatment of postoperative nausea is effective and that a nurse can perform these care measures. In two of the five scientific articles, acupressure was used as an intervention without any side effects and showed that it is and can be used as an action against postoperative nausea with a good effect. The scientific articles have concluded that hospital stays decreases in nonmedical nursing interventions. However it needs to be done more research around the area of non-pharmacological measures for postoperative nausea and an expanded selection of non-pharmacological measures. Research should also be more carried on other causes of nausea, because it is an everyday problem in health care.
