Detection of Postoperative Respiratory Depression in High Risk Patients Utilizing Minute Ventilation Monitoring

Respiratory volume monitor (RVM) (ExSpiron) is superior to continuous pulse oximetry in detection of postoperative respiratory depression in high risk patients.


Aims are to: 1) Estimate the incidence of postoperative respiratory depression in high risk patients as detected by continuous pulse oximetry 2) Estimate the incidence of postoperative respiratory depression in high risk patients as detected by continuous respiratory volume monitor (RVM) (ExSpiron) 3) Assess the agreement between the continuous pulse oximetry and continuous respiratory volume monitor (RVM) (ExSpiron) in detection of postoperative respiratory depression in high risk patients

Risk factors for opioid-induced respiratory depression in surgical patients: a systematic review and meta-analyses.

This systematic review and meta-analysis aim to evaluate the risk factors associated with postoperative opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An opioid antagonist with properties similar to those of NALOXONE; in addition it also possesses some agonist properties. It should be used cautiously; levallorphan reverses severe opioid-induced respiratory depression but may exacerbate respiratory depression such as that induced by alcohol or other non-opioid central depressants. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p683)

Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)

Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.

Depression in POSTPARTUM WOMEN, usually within four weeks after giving birth (PARTURITION). The degree of depression ranges from mild transient depression to neurotic or psychotic depressive disorders. (From DSM-IV, p386)

Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.
