“Derivation & Validation of a Novel Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Risk Prediction Tool”

Initiatives Webinar series with support from Medtronic* & Phillips* presents…“Derivation & Validation of a Novel Opioid-Induced Respiratory Depression Risk Prediction Tool”

Opioid-induced respiratory depression (OIRD), a form of respiratory compromise, is one of the leading avoidable patient safety issues. Respiratory compromise increases morbidity and mortality as well hospital inpatient costs. This presentation will discuss the results of a recent, multi-center study (PRODIGY, a Medtronic-sponsored study), which was designed to identify people at high risk for OIRD. Results showed that more than 40% of patients on the general care floor experienced OIRD. The investigators will share an easy-to use risk prediction tool they developed to identify patients at high risk that can lead to earlier interventions.
