Using acupuncture and acupressure to treat postoperative emesis.

Abstract
Interest in non-pharmacological strategies to manage health-care problems is increasing. Effective treatment for postoperative nausea and vomiting continues to be elusive, despite the introduction of new anti-emetic drugs. Acupuncture and acupressure might offer an effective, safe, simple and cheap therapy.
