BACKGROUND Acute opioid tolerance is a known entity leading to reduced analgesic efficacy of these drugs in the postoperative period. However, the development of acute opioid tolerance in the very short term, i.e., during the intraoperative period when opioids are being administered, has not been reported. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine if acute opioid tolerance could develop and limit the opioid-induced reduction in the minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) for inhalant… CONTINUE READING
