In brief: Need more info.

What do you mean by palliative sedation? Is the sedation for a surgical procedure? I have never heard if palliative sedation.

In brief: NO , is not for that

The term ' palliative sedation ' is used for a different purpose , for people for end stage diseases ( end of the life ) with intractable pains like terminal cancer and allow them to die , if you have intractable vomiting go and see your doctor for tests and treatment.
