|1.||Delayed nausea and vomiting|
|3.||Acute nausea and vomiting|
|4.||Anticipatory nausea and vomiting|
Delayed nausea may occur 24-48 hours after chemotherapy administration, primarily due to the ongoing effect that the metabolites exert on the CNS or GI tract. Despite effective antiemetic regimens, 93% of clients receiving cisplatin experience delayed nausea. Anticipatory nausea occurs in approximately 25% of clients due to the classic conditioning response from prior therapy. Acute nausea occurs 1-2 hours after chemotherapy administration. The critical words in the stem of the question are 24 hours after. From there, evaluate each option in terms of time frame. Eliminate options 2 and 3 because they are focused on the present, and eliminate option 4 because it is future-oriented related to the chemotherapy administration.
