Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) for the treatment of nausea and vomiting
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) involves pulses of electrical current applied to the skin. Although originally introduced as a pain control intervention, TENS has also been investigated as a method to reduce nausea and vomiting in the postoperative setting, in patients receiving chemotherapy, in pregnant women, and in patients who experience severe motion sickness.
