Reply To: Food bloat and emesis induction


Overall, I don’t think there would be a strong contraindication regarding making these patients sick.

I have been asking round in the office too! Most people agree that if there is not a partial torsion, vomiting should be safe. There is always the risk of aspiration too.

Most of these cases I have managed with analgesia, fluids and time.

Hope that helps.
