I have a question on blood?

Nurses General Nursing


Can someone help me understand why vomiting blood can contribute to having more nausea. I thought it would be because of the metalic taste of it but my teacher says that is the wrong answer. I am looking in my book and have done internet searchs and cannot find anything. Can someone direct me in the right direction please. Thanks so much.

Maybe because it offsets the ph?

Having blood in the stomach causes nausea and vomiting, so maybe it's that rather than vomiting it up that she means.
