The use of isopropyl alcohol pads to treat nausea has mainly been used for postoperative nausea and vomiting related to inhalational anesthesics. In this setting, isopropyl alcohol has shown promise in reducing the need for additional conventional intravenous medications to treat ongoing nausea.

“We love it when we find a cheap, easy and fast way to bring relief to our patients,” said lead study author, Dr. Kenneth Beadle, of the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium in San Antonio, Texas. “Nausea and vomiting are the chief complaint for nearly five million emergency patients every year, so this remedy has the potential to help a lot of people.”
