The person feels sick or is vomiting

How can you help? Who else can help?

The doctor or nurse will be able to give some anti-sickness (or ‘anti-emetic’) medication. Sometimes these medications may have to be given as injections under the skin, often using a small, battery operated called a ‘syringe pump’.

Apply a cool, damp cloth to the person’s forehead.

Avoid strong smells, such as air freshener, aftershave/perfume, or smells from cooking.

Give the person smaller amounts of food rather than large meals.
