Abstract
Opioid analgesics used to treat pain can cause respiratory depression. However, this effect has not been extensively studied, and life- threatening, opioid-induced respiratory depression remains difficult to predict. We tested the ventilatory response to hypercapnia for evaluating the pharmacodynamic effect of a drug on respiratory depression.
