[Scientific session research presentation] Purpose: To provide nurses with an understanding of how acupressure can prevent post-operative nausea and vomiting on laparoscopic patients. Objectives: Define acupressure. Describe three advantages of acupressure wristbands. Problem:  Post-operative nausea and vomiting remains among the most distressing side effects of anesthesia on laparoscopic patients despite advances made in pharmacological therapy. Background: When patients are asked what they find most anxiety provoking about having surgery, the top concerns almost always include post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV). Acupressure is an ancient Chinese alternative complementary approach to treat nausea and vomiting non-invasively and with out any untoward side effects. This approach has been used in Chinese medicine for over 4,500 years. This presentation will compare the anti-emetic efficacy, anxiety reduction and patient satisfaction between the commonly used anti-emetic drugs and acupressure wristbands in the prevention of post-operative nausea and vomiting. The advantages of using the acupressure wristbands over the anti-emetic drugs will be discuss. Post-operative nausea and vomiting will be define according to the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Society (ASPAN) guidelines. Risks factors and causes of post-operative nausea and vomiting will be identify. Nurses' role will be discuss in the prevention of PONV. Lastly, it will discuss a sure way to convince the institution to "buy-in" and to implement the use of acupressure wristbands in preventing the occurrence of post-operative nausea and vomiting into practice.
