International CVS Awareness Day March 5, 2022

Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) occurs in the form of nausea and vomiting without any identifiable cause or trigger. It is a debilitating condition that could last for hours to days, and affects all age groups with specifically higher occurrences in children.

Treatment options are unspecific due to the unknown etiology of the syndrome and the vast range of conditions that could cause nausea and vomiting. The safest and most effective management would be to limit the symptoms via anti-emetic devices and medications, as well as therapies that manage migraine headaches.

EmeTerm and HeadaTerm are FDA cleared devices and designed to target the non-specific symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and primary headaches. WAT Medical aims to raise awareness of debilitating conditions like CVS, and to improve the quality of life of patients who suffer from it.
