Antiemetic therapy in the emergency department. by David, Josh, Marshall, and Keith

In this episode David, Keith, Josh, and Marshall discuss an article by Tyler W. Barrett, M.D., entitled A randomized, placebo-controlled trial of ondansetron, metoclopramide, and promethazine in adults. To treat nausea, does normal saline have the same results as ondansetron? Or could the similarities be attributed to The Hawthorne Effect? This is a well-intended study with challenging results.
