Abstract

Abstract Nausea, unlike emesis, is a subjective experience that is difficult to describe to others, be they clinicians or researchers. Previous research has been limited to examining the frequency, severity, and duration of nausea. The goal of this study was to design a questionnaire that would allow for the evaluation of the characteristics of nausea across individuals and situations. This study consisted of 4 stages: descriptors were generated, categorized into 3 dimensions, and reevaluated to verify their reliability; in the final stage, the developed checklist was compared to a visual-analogue-scale (VAS) report of nausea in subjects exposed to a rotating optokinetic drum to stimulate nausea. The overall nausea checklist score and the VAS score were highly correlated ( r=0.71, p<0.01). The development and use of the nausea checklist are discussed.
