Palliative care is concerned with improving the quality of life of patients with life-threatening disease through the prevention of or relief from troublesome symptoms. Nausea and vomiting are two of the most common but debilitating symptoms for palliative patients, adversely affecting their quality of life. If untreated, they can lead to malnutrition, depression, fatigue, electrolyte imbalance and even fractured ribs.
