Summary
Brief summary
Rational for project

Many studies have investigated the treatment of post operative nausea and vomiting (PONV)

However, there is disagreement on both the incidence of PONV and how to prevent it

Few studies have investigated the period post discharge

Day case gynaecological surgery patients are particularly at risk of PONV

There is evidence that total intravenous anaethesia may decrease the incidence of PONV

This study sets out to investigate a specific subgroup of high risk patients. This will allow for specific recommendations to be made regarding the management of this subgroup of patients.
