Abstract: Intravenous (IV) fluid replacement is standard treatment for hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). (SOR C, expert opinion.) Neither specific pharmacological treatments nor acupuncture have been proven effective. (SOR B, based on systematic reviews of low-quality studies.) Acupressure at the Nei-Guan point on the wrist appears to be beneficial and safe. (SOR B, based on a single randomized controlled trial.)
