As the main advocate for your patient’s safety, it’s important to understand that some medications can cause life-threatening conditions such as respiratory depression, bradycardia and even bleeding. And while not all medications have a reversal, some of them do…thank goodness! In this podcast episode, we’ll talk about some of the most common meds that, if overdone, may require emergent reversal. 

  • Opioids
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Beta blockers
  • Heparin
  • Warfarin
  • Factor Xa inhibitors
