Fentanyl for intubation

Common Questions and Answers about Fentanyl for intubation


7303500 tn?1389997641 Has anyone ever gone to rehab to be medically detoxed from fentanyl and oxycodone? I've been on pain meds for about two years now. I've only been on fentanyl for three months but I want off everything. I feel like I'm in a constant fog. I hate the way I feel. The fentanyl is making me depressed really bad. It also gives me anxiety. I have chronic pain but I think I would rather be in pain then deal with the way pain meds make me feel.
Avatar f tn I am going to get off the Fentanyl patches and put on Methadone using Suboxone as a bridge .I have never heard of this med called Suboxone.I am on 200mcg of Fentanyl how long will it take to get off the fentanyl?
Avatar f tn And the anaesthesiologist presents the bill, of course. Timely use of emergenmcy medications will usually (but not always) preclude the need for intubation, but if it is necessary, it is not a procedure that is painful or has long-lasting problems. When you do a lot of intubations you get better at it. The biggest problem is that there are two passageways, the trachea leading to the lung, and the esophagus, leading to the stomach. It is possible to stick the tube down the wrong hole.
511091 tn?1211149660 I recently had a colonoscopy done in a hospital, and when the anesthesiologist found out I had sleep apnea, he insisted on intubating me. He was very rude about it, and I explained that I've had 2 colonoscopies done in the past and wasn't intubated for either of them. I woke up OK, but I was so scared I was going to be awake when they put the tube in or took it out. He told me he didn't want me to desaturate during the procedure.
599170 tn?1300973893 I also was vomiting yesterday have lost 5lbs in a week, he wanted me to go for chest x ray but I really felt too sick to sit in hospital for hours I am going for xray at drs office Monday( guy sho usually does it was off Friday) I am not coughin anymore so i do not think I have pnemonia? Has anyone had anything similar?
Avatar n tn I asked if I could bring my unused fentanyl patches in to the office for destruction and then receive a prescription for an equal number of patches, which I would then fill with my preferred (Mylan) brand that has adhered more consistently to my skin. I also mentioned that I was still experiencing breakthrough pain, as I wrote above, and that I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with my physician at my next scheduled appointment about pain management.
6815927 tn?1395511425 Jenelle, thank you for your thoughts--I was hoping to hear from someone that had been on methadone. I had heard that methadone was the hardest opiate to detox from and I don't know why my psychiatrist thought it would be easier. I think it is one of those incidences where the medical community thinks they know what is best but had never experienced a practical application of their beliefs.
Avatar f tn You may find that even your vocal chords were actually bruised around a bit with the intubation tube. This can take a little longer to heal than an easy intubation. Grazing can happen for many reasons. The vocal chords are too far down the throat to be able to have a drink or food to help them. You could try this trick, which apparently works well for singers who have a bit of a hoarse voice, fill a basin or large bowl with steaming hot (Not boiling!!!!!!
1417802 tn?1282173063 That is a HUGE jump up to fentanyl....and could be VERY DANGEROUS! I would recommend NOT putting that patch on! It sounds very strange...why wouldn't the dr increase the # or norcos you could take?
Avatar f tn On the fentenyal patch and told my us came back positive for oxycodone how is this possible?
Avatar m tn my life has changed. I was told by the doctor I had been seeing for years, that I would be on the fentanyl for the rest of my life. I was so depressed. I was always in pain...my quality of life was just awful. I have been very hesitant to post about this, because suboxone is usually used for addiction...and isn't widely used in pain management.....but it is the best pain reliever I have had over the past 5 years of pain and surgeries.... So.,..
Avatar f tn when we are put under a general anesthesia we are intubated to keep our airways open and sometimes for a variety of reasons our throats and mouths come out worse for the wear. The intubation tube is run thru your mouth and down into the trach. which is via your throat. It may still may just be a little sore and sensitive. I woud call the doc up and tell them exactly what you are feeling.
Avatar f tn I had an emergency trach for 4 weeks - it was removed 2 weeks ago. Since then I have really great days and then days where breathing seems labored. I was on steroids but am now weaning off of those. It is especially bothersome at night - I try to sleep lying down and sometimes can then other nights I sleep upright in a recliner. Some days my voice is strong, almost normal and others it goes right back to being weak. What is a normal recup time from a trach? Does this sound normal?
Avatar m tn I am currently taking Opana ER 30mg /2 TID for long term spinal pain due to breaks and fusions. I am going to try replacing that for a short time with a Fentanyl Patch to see if I have any improvement in Pain Mgmt. I am just wondering what regimen I should use to safely do this. For example. Is it as easy as waiting 12 hrs. after my last Opana ER and then apply the patch (it's a 3 day patch) then take another ER once the 3 days has expired?
Avatar n tn ITU admission due to respiratory and renal failure, parotitis, and impaired swallowing after extubation and removal of tracheostomy. Readmitted to ITU for drainage of lung then deteriorated with respiratory failure, AKI,hypertension and intubation WAs treated for Enterobacter infection from ETT, later I developed parotitis and was treated with Antibiotics, this was 10 months ago, and still feeling not perfect, now 75. When should I get back to normal?? please revert. Best REgards. RBM.
Avatar n tn im in detox from fentanyl. my dr. prescribed wellbutrin for 30 days. I was on 50 mg so I was given 25mg and wore the patch for 4 to 5 days before putting on a new one. after my last patch I started on xanax for withdrawls symtoms and put on a catapress patch. this worked real well and I feel like im starting to feel good. there are times my skin hurts and muscles hurt so that's where the xanax helps. I had neck surgery to replace a blown disc and know what pain is like.
Avatar n tn So I am going to post an email my husband and I sent to a Neurologist but have not received anything from him. I am scheduled for emg and other test soon but this is really getting to me. I was wondering if anyone can let me know if this could be perminent. This is lasting a long time and I am hoping it goes away soon. My name is Aaron Dickerson and I am writing to you in the hopes that you can give my wife and I some guidance on which direction we should go.
Avatar m tn My daughter has had many feeding isues since she was born and particularly after heart surgeries(she's had several, was born with single ventricle). She would never gag though, she just wouldn't eat. The sore throat from intubation shouldn't last 2 weeks, especially because he wasn't intubated for very long. I would call the doctor especially since he is only a couple of weeks post op. Does he have a feeding tube?
910419 tn?1289483727 ve heard good things from one of my friends about the Fentanyl (sp?) patch as it lasts for days, which would be awesome for my marathon migraines which can last weeks. (that's on top of my 6/10 or higher pain level for the past 8 years). My mom suggested talking to my psych about the patch first, as she and my neuro work with each other on me and some other patients. But I don't know how to broach the subject. Any suggestions?
5135507 tn?1367163227 Fentanyl is a good drug to treat pain for terminally ill patients , or ppl who need 24 hour pain relief. But drs are passing this drug out to patients who don't need it or they keep increasing the dosage until its almost impossible to get off of it when the time comes. I know, it happened to me. Then wnen the dr was fired after I was on it for 5 yrs, I was basically screwed.
Avatar f tn Recently my oncologist of a year at the same clinic that put me on the fentanyl 5 years ago has decided she wants me to go off fentanyl and take methadone instead. I will have to be hospitalized and go through detox for a week, but I havent heard much in the way of assurance that methadone will be able to control the pain I will have again if it doesnt work. I have asked what my options will be and I am told "she doesnt have time to teach me".
