Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly used medications worldwide. They are an important non-addictive option for pain relief, and optimizing NSAID therapy is one strategy to address the current opioid crisis. However, NSAIDs also have the potential to cause serious adverse cardiovascular events, most notably myocardial infarction, stroke, and heart failure. This talk will discuss ongoing work investigating factors that contribute to inter-individual variability in cardiovascular risk and analgesic efficacy of NSAIDs.
- Describe the mechanism of action of NSAIDs and how this relates to cardiovascular risk and analgesic efficacy.
- Compare and contrast naproxen and celecoxib with regard to pharmacological potency and effect on blood pressure.
- Describe factors that contribute to inter-individual variability in analgesic response to NSAIDs following third molar extraction.
