UPDATE April, 2018: In this episode I mention that the evidence is not good for Midazolam in preventing PONV.  However, a good friend and colleague, Dr. Michael Grant, did a nice meta-analysis of available trials which concluded that it actually does work fairly well.  Check out his study:

Grant MC, Kim J, Page AJ, et al. The Effect of Intravenous Midazolam on Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Meta-Analysis. Anesthesia & Analgesia: 2016:122(3); 656–663.
