Isopropyl Alcohol Nasal Inhalation for Nausea

I’m rather interested in this trial onĀ Isopropyl Alcohol Nasal Inhalation for Nausea in the emergency department:

Of 84 recruited patients, 80 (95.2%) completed the study. Thirty-seven (46.3%) received nasally inhaled isopropyl alcohol and 43 (53.8%) received nasally inhaled normal saline solution. At 10 minutes postintervention, median nausea verbal numeric response scale score was 3 in the isopropyl alcohol arm versus 6 in the placebo arm, for an effect size of 3 (95% confidence interval 2 to 4).
