  5. GI bleed may occur with ASA and NSAID without ______?
    prodromal symtoms
  6. Long term use of NSAIDs and salicylates may decrease what disease?

    but not if taking for cardioprotective effects
  7. NSAIDS may be associated with increased risk of?
    • MI
    • stroke
    • adverse cardiovascular events
  8. salicylates and NSAIDs reduce inflammation by
    inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, prostacyclin, and thromboxane in both CNS and peripheral tissue
  9. Salicylates and NSAIDS reduce pain by
    • anti-inflammatory process
    • due to decrease in prostaglandin levels= reduction of inflammation
  10. ASA and antipyretic effects
    blocks interleukin-1 on the hypothalamus which is responsible for temp control.

    causes vasodilation of superficial blood vessel, which dissipates heat
  11. NSAIDs antiplatelet MOA
    block COX-1 and the production of thromboxane

    have reversible inactivation of COX, only good for duration of drug activity. - this is why ASA is used for prevention of MI and stroke
  12. Platelet activation is stimulated by thromboxane which causes _____ and ______?
    aggregation and the clotting cascade
  13. ASA and antiplatelet MOA
    • causes irreversible inactivation of COX
    • decreasing thromboxane for the 8-10 days life of platelet

  15. ADRS of ASA  and NSAIDS
    Inhibition of prostaglandins causes more gastric acid production and increased risk of gastric mucosal damage

    damaged kidneys rely on prostaglandins for vasodilation, inhibition decreases blood flow to kidneys
  16. Long term use of NSAIDs and Celecoxib (COX-2 inhibitor) can cause
    renal papillary necrosis, renal insufficiency, acute renal failure, and other renal injuires.

    Unless what?
    COX-2 selective NSAID

  22. All drugs have generic except _____?
    this drug also has _______ properties?

  23. DOC OA
    mild OA- tylenol

    • If tylenol not effective start on NSAID
    • NSAIDs are more effective for OA of knee or hip

    COXZ -2 in elderly for long term tx because of decreased GI effects.
  24. Indomethacin has high risk for adverse reactions such as
    • headache
    • CNS
    • hyperkalemia
    • aggravates epilepsy and parkinsonism

    *short term use only
  25. Patient variables with NSAIDS and ASA use
    medical conditions- renal, hepatic, and cardiovascular diseases- many adverse effects related to NSAID use and these conditions!!!



  26. non pharmalogic treatment of OA

    weight loss can reduce strain on joints
  27. RICE
    • rest
