1.  Intravenous Narcotic Antagonists in Ambulatory Oral Surgery 
Anesthesia Progress  1975;22(2):38-44.
Results of a study indicate that significant respiratory depression can be produced by the intravenous administration of narcotics in the anesthetic management of oral surgery patients. Naloxone hydrochloride reversed this reaction in all instances. Naloxone is a unique narcotic antagonist in that it does not possess agonistic properties of its own, it is effective in reversing respiratory depression resulting from all commonly used narcotics and narcotic antagonists, it causes no undesirable side effects, and it acts as a placebo when administered to a patient who has not had a narcotic. The use of naloxone should be considered when a potent narcotic is administered to an ambulatory patient.
