There was profound respiratory depression 100 minutes after the administration of fentanyl 100 micrograms epidurally (192), whilst epidural sufentanil caused apnea within a couple of minutes, reversed by nalbuphine (193). Epidural buprenorphine 150 micrograms produced prolonged timedependent biphasic depression of carbon dioxide response in six healthy volunteers. The second maximum occurred at 8–10 hours after injection (194). Similar cases have been reported by others. 5-year-old child had been given a caudal epidural of 100 micrograms/kg of morphine (195).
