This patient presents with a benzodiazepine (BZD) overdose and impaired respiratory status requiring the use of flumazenil. BZDs are commonly prescribed and are common culprits in both unintentional and intentional overdoses. They produce sedative and hypnotic effects through inhibitory actions at GABA receptors. These agents are rapidly absorbed via the oral route making gastric decontamination ineffective in most situations and are metabolized in the liver.
