Course Details

Overview

Opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD) is a life-threatening complication of opioid analgesia. Even the most opioid-tolerant patient isn’t immune. Respiratory arrest is a contributing factor in about one third of the 750,000 cardiopulmonary arrests that occur annually in U.S. hospitals, and about half of these patients previously received an opioid. Mortality for in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest may be as high as 80 percent, with the worst outcomes occurring in medical-surgical units. This course is designed to provide nurses with information on how to use capnography to help detect and prevent serious complications of opioid-induced respiratory depression.

Key Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe opioid-induced respiratory depression.
  2. Discuss the role of capnography in monitoring patients for OIRD.
  3. State how to use capnography for patients at risk for OIRD.
