Id: NTR5455

Organisation Name: LUMC

Overal Status: Planned

Start Date: 2015-09-01

Lead Sponsor: LUMC

Brief Summary: In 40 patients following elective surgery under general anesthesia that require opioid pain relief the IPI will be measured at the PACU (post anesthesia care unit) during the first postoperative night (end of study 8 AM 1st postoperative day). In these 40 patients the IPI will be measured but no action will be undertaken based on the IPI. Local protocol will be followed in which nurses base their decision to intervene (ie. stimulate the patient, call for help) on sedation level and respiratory rate. The study will generate data on the incidence of respiratory events in the study population to be potential used in a next IPI-study where the focus is on interventions as a result of the IPI.
