Abstract: Various perioperative interventions associated with anesthesia and surgery significantly influence respiratory function. Patterns and severity of the perioperative respiratory depression may significantly depend on coexisting diseases, consciousness, and other structural and functional factors relating to breathing stability. This symposium will explore mechanisms and clinical managements for preventing, detecting and treating respiratory depression that should change our clinical practice and patient outcomes.
