Below are highlights of just a few of the actionable commitments made by the clinical community participants to reduce preventable patient harm and deaths within our hospitals.   

Preventing Respiratory Depression Deaths from Post-Operative Opioids:  Michael A.E. Ramsay , MD, FRCA, Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology at Baylor University Medical Center and President of Baylor Research Institute in Irving, Texas,made a commitment to educate clinicians about the unintended risks and delayed effects of some opioids administered post-operatively for pain management and work to research, deploy and refine new technologies that help to identify opioid-induced respiratory depression before a failure to rescue occurs. "Most clinicians don't realize the delayed effects and unintended risk of death posed by the use of some commonly administered opioids designed to manage pain after surgery," stated Ramsay. "My commitment is to change this by delivering lectures and teaching rounds in healthcare facilities around the world about the dangers of post-operative respiratory depression induced by the use of opioids for pain management. In addition, through my research in this area, I will continue to identify and help deploy technologies proven to prevent failures in care and further develop the clinical practices and technology protocols necessary to prevent unrecognized opioid-induced respiratory depression.
