Answer

Analgesics

Pain control is essential for quality patient care. Analgesics ensure patient comfort, promote pulmonary toilet, and have sedating properties, which are beneficial for patients who have sustained trauma or injuries.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Panadol, Paracetamol)

DOC for pain in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin, NSAIDs, diagnosed with upper GI disease or on oral anticoagulants.

Hydrocodone bitartrate with acetaminophen (Vicodin, Lortab, Lorcet HD)

Drug combination indicated for moderate to severe pain.
