Abstract

We review the published literature examining the efficacy of acupressure and acustimulation wrist bands for the relief of nausea, with special emphasis on the alleviation of nausea associated with pregnancy. We also present preliminary data from an open-label study on the efficacy of acustimulation bands for control of chemotherapy nausea. The literature supports the conclusion that Neiguan-point stimulation by acupressure and acustimulation wrist bands for nausea relief is efficacious for many patients.
