Treatment of Cancer Patients' Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea
For cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, nausea and vomiting have long been the most severe and problematic side effects. Untreated nausea and vomiting brought on by chemotherapy can affect patients' everyday lives, interfere with treatment plans, and cause metabolic problems, dehydration, nutritional depletion, and esophageal rips. Chemotherapy-related nausea is still an issue, despite the widespread use of antiemetics. Unlike vomiting, which is a subjective and observable phenomena, nausea cannot be accurately diagnosed or treated. According to recent studies, the best approach to managing nausea brought on by chemotherapy is to treat the symptoms as they first appear rather than waiting until they become severe. This review emphasizes evidence-based approaches to treating nausea brought on by chemotherapy. Despite the better efficacy and increased survival afforded by contemporary treatments, the side-effects and long-term squeal of anti-cancer chemotherapy continue to be a significant cause of concern for both patients and clinicians. Current treatments for chemotherapy-related side effects are generally ineffective, routinely ignore potential long-term consequences, or even cause new side effects that only make patients feel worse. The present Research Topic concentrates on this topic and identifies various areas of advancement. New methods to increase tolerance and decrease side effects of cancer chemotherapy are urgently required.
