DIAZ GUZMAN, M.C.; NACLE LOPEZ, I.  and  MORENO VILLAR, A.. Nursing care in emesis in oncohaematological patients. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.22. ISSN 1695-6141.

Emesis not only the onset of vomiting associated with chemotherapy treatment but the arches and nausea, which is the feeling of desire vomiting, digestive distress and inability to retain vomiting, even When this does not occur. The main problem is that it deteriorates the quality of life of patients and even, in some cases, endangers his life. Hence the importance of its perception and treatment, although the best measure is prevention. It is one of the best known toxic effects by patients before starting treatment and one of the most feared. Therefore, this study seeks to analyze the response to antiemetic prophylaxis in the acute phase (AF) and delayed (FR) in haematological patients with chemotherapy. It includes patients treated with intravenous cytostatic between January and October 2008. 14 patients were treated, with the following diagnoses: Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. 84 Surveys are delivered (66 processed). Among the conclusions to be drawn is that we see a good response to chemotherapy in both FA and FR. Haematology is reviewed along with the protocol of antiemetic regimen for highly emetogenic chemotherapy in FMD, where there was 21% non-response.
