Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Risk Prediction Tool

Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Risk Prediction Tool

Ludwig H. Lin, MD, and Ashish K. Khanna, MD, FCCP, FCCM, discuss Dr. Khanna’s top-rated abstract, Derivation and Validation of a Novel Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Risk Prediction Tool, from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s 48th Critical Care Congress. Nearly half of all in-hospital cardiorespiratory arrests occur on general care floors; opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD) is one potential cause of these events. Dr. Khanna investigated the incidence of OIRD as part of the PRODIGY trial. Dr. Khanna is an associate professor of anesthesiology and associate chief of research at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA. Dr. Khanna discloses that he served on the executive advisory board for the respiratory monitoring division of Medtronic and received consulting fees from Medtronic for being part of the steering committee of the PRODIGY trial. This podcast is supported by an unrestricted educational grant provided by Medtronic.
