Clinical Correlation

The patient with a history of cigarette smoking and COPD now exhibits long-term carbon dioxide retention, hypoxia, and worsening of respiratory acidosis with incomplete compensation. This is termed acute-on-chronic carbon dioxide retention. The drug testing and patient history revealed excessive intake of OxyContin, a synthetic narcotic, for chronic upper back pain. This medication was causing acute respiratory distress.

The Team Approach

Sleeping pills or antianxiety medications, taken chronically as abused drugs, depress the respiratory center when taken in large amounts and cause acute-on-chronic CO2 retention. These drugs include barbiturates, such as phenobarbital or secobarbital opium derivatives, including morphine and oxycodone ethyl alcohol and many others. Noncompensatory respiratory acidosis and serious hypoxia can result.

Modifiedrelease Delivery Systems

In the case of the second-generation modified-release preparations, a portion of the active ingredient is immediately available to help reach satisfactory blood levels, while the remainder of the drug is released slowly, over time. OxyContin , a modified-release version of oxycodone, is an example of this system. In OxyContin, approximately 38 of the dose is released rapidly, whereas the remainder of the drug is delivered over the 12 hours, twice-daily dosing schedule (31). For most patients, this results in rapid onset of analgesic effect and stable blood levels of oxycodone over the 24-hour period. This benefit becomes a liability in those patients who have used oxycodone as a drug of misuse, because by simply crushing the tablet, the clever delivery system is compromised, and the OxyContin becomes essentially an immediate-release product.

Symptoms And Management

Several factors play a role in opioid choices efficacy, versatility, drug interaction, therapeutic index, availability, cost, and organ function. Opioid agonist antagonists, nalbuphine, butorphanol, and meperidine should not be used.921 The most common potent opioids in the first-line treatment of cancer pain are morphine and methadone, fentanyl, hydro-morphone, and oxycodone if limiting side effects occur with morphine. 24-28 Low doses of a potent opioid can be substituted for weak opioids (by World Health Organization classification). Choices will depend upon the patient's previous opioid experience, comorbidities (renal and hepatic function), and comedications. The type of pain does not play a particularly strong role in the choice of opioids. Rotations for reasons of uncontrolled pain should be at equivalent doses and rotations for reasons of side effects should be at 50-75 of equivalent doses.21 Converting from oral to rectal route should be done at equivalent doses.

Drugofabuse Testing

Drugs of abuse are typically medications obtained without a prescription, or taken by a person other than the one for whom they were prescribed, or are illicit drugs. The most common drugs of abuse vary from region to region and change with current times. Currently throughout the country, marijuana and metham-phetamine are common drugs of abuse, as are prescription drugs such as oxycodone (OxyContin) or diazepam (Valium). 2. CNS depressants. These drugs relax nerves, lower heart rate and respiratory rate, reduce pain, and give a feeling of euphoria. These include narcotics, hypnotics, sedatives, and tranquilizers. Drugs or drug classes in this group include barbiturates methaqualone benzodiazepines, including Valium and oxycodone and other opiates, including morphine, heroin (which metabolizes to morphine), codeine (methylmorphine), and methadone. Drugs in this category taken in overdoses cause respiratory depression and acidosis.

Perioperative Pain

In the World Health Organization ladder, moderate pain is treated with traditionally weak opioids. Agents, such as codeine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and meperidine, are used. Mixed agonists-antagonists are incorrectly considered protective against respiratory depression but may have greater side effects. These mixed agonists also have a ceiling effect. For severe pain, traditionally strong opioids are used. Unless contraindicated, morphine is generally considered the agent of choice. Other strong opioids include methadone, hydromorphone, levorphanol, and oxymorphone (103).
