Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy are very common, and between 50% and 80% of pregnant women experience them. However, the persistent vomiting that characterizes hyperemesis gravidarum is a serious pregnancy complication that without treatment may endanger the life of both the expectant mother and the fetus. It is defined as severe nausea and vomiting that result in weight loss, nutritional imbalance, and dehydration. This educational activity will address the etiology, assessment, and management of the condition.


The goal of this continuing education program is to update the healthcare professional’s understanding of the theories and treatment of hyperemesis gravidarum. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the etiology and pathophysiology of HG
  • Describe assessment findings, including signs and symptoms along with pertinent laboratory values
  • Explain treatment options for HG
  • Compare the pros and cons of enteral vs. parenteral nutrition in the treatment of HG
