Chapter 4 discusses how the clinical effect (both analgesic efficacy and toxicity) of many analgesic agents is changed in patients with impaired renal function, especially those dependent on the kidneys for elimination, and addresses the implications when using opioids for pain management, with respect not only to the particular opioid used, but also to the dose and dosing frequency.
