Summary: During spinal or epidural anesthesia for patients undergoing various surgical and obstetric procedures, nausea and/or vomiting may be a disturbing situation for both patient and surgeon. Especially in obstetric procedures, e.g., Cesarean section, therapeutic choices must be considered carefully because of potential effects on both mother and infant.

Accordingly, a group of individuals whose primary practice is obstetric anesthesia has been invited to express their views on the management of this problem. Etiologic factors and therapeutic principles are discussed.
