Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An advanced state of nausea and vomiting, which are common symptoms of early pregnancy, is known as hyperemesis gravidarum and may result in dehydration, ketonuria, catabolism and require hospitalisation. Aetiological factors include increased hCG and steroids, multiple pregnancy and vitamin deficiency. Differential diagnosis of nausea and vomiting should be made and supportive treatment as well as antiemetic therapy is recommended. This review discusses aetiology and management modalities of hyperemesis gravidarum including fluid therapy, antiemetics, vitamins, psychological support and non-pharmacological measures.
