#1 Most Viewed Clinical Education Podcast in 2018 – Preventing Avoidable Deaths: Monitor for Respiratory Compromise [viewed 78,204 as of December 21, 2018]

About this clinical education podcast:

In this clinical education podcast, Frank Overdyk, MD, who is an anesthesiologist practicing in Charleston, SC, discusses the costs of monitoring patients receiving opioids and the costs of not being monitored. It is impossible to predict with 100% accuracy how a particular patient will react when administered an opioid. Continuous patient monitoring, which costs just $20-$30 per day in the case of monitoring with pulse oximetry, is a small price to pay to help prevent avoidable patient deaths.
