Its consumption due to the rapid onset, short duration of action, Anti-nausea and vomiting property and comfortable feeling after surgery is on the rise. Materials and Methods: In this clinical trial, 90 patients undergoing general surgery were randomly divided into three groups. In the first group induction-dose was 1/5mg/kg propofol, in the second group, induction-dose was 2 mg/kg propofol and in the third group, 2/5mg/kg propofol was used. Based on self-reporting scale and frequency of vomiting, the evaluation condidering the severity and incidence of nausea and vomiting was done in three stages: Exactly after the surgery, and 2 and 6 hours afterwards. Data was analyzed by Spss software. Findings: The results showed that considering age, gender, duration of NPO time, and operation time, no significant difference was found among the three groups. Based on one-way analysis of variance there was no significant difference between groups in severity and incidence of nausea and vomiting. conclusion: Propofol has positive effect incontrolling nausea and vomiting after surgery in different doses. Therefore, administration of Propofol (with divided doses and without the need for pumps) is simple and cheap.
