Evaluation of a non-invasive method of assessing opioid induced respiratory depression.

Abstract:

Opioid induced respiratory depression is potentially fatal. The aim of this study was to validate a monitoring system that could be used to assess respiratory depression in postoperative patients. The hypercapnic ventilatory response was estimated non-invasively in 12 volunteers. In two steps, we tested a system which delivered carbon dioxide (CO(2)) challenges through a venturi mask, measuring changes in ventilation with an uncalibrated respiratory inductance plethysmograph (RIP). RIP and pn...
