This side effect induces physiological and electrolytic dysfunctions, changes in immunity system, nutritional disruption, and even esophageal perforation. Consequently, it affects patients’ quality of life and the continuance of treatment. Most patients with cancer experience CINV. The increase of excessive vogues excitation due to sympathetic inhibition is among the most important factors in the manifestation of CINV. Many factors increase the chance of CINV.
