Abstract

  According to the NJR, approximately 160,000 lower limb joint replacements are performed annually, with local data demonstrating a 4-fold rise in cases over 10 years [1].

  The AAGBI advocates multidisciplinary, protocol-driven integrated pathways to effectively manage such patients.

  Enhanced Recovery theory has highlighted this notion [3], and this audit has focused on one aspect of minimising and addressing PONV, which is still prevalent and impactful to patient’s overall experience and recovery.
