Answer

Analgesics

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. Analgesics ensure patient comfort and promote pulmonary toilet.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Feverall, aspirin-free Anacin)

DOC for pain in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or NSAIDs, with upper GI disease, or who are taking oral anticoagulants. Effective in relieving mild to moderate acute pain; however, it has no peripheral anti-inflammatory effects. May be preferred in elderly patients because of fewer GI and renal side effects.

Hydrocodone/acetaminophen

Drug combination indicated for moderate to severe pain.
