    2. 2. I: Pain and Analgesi cs <ul><li>Pain ”an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage” </li></ul><ul><li>Analgesia absence of pain </li></ul>
    3. 4. Pain pathways <ul><li>Specialized receptors = free nerve endings </li></ul><ul><li>Stimulation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mechanical damage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extreme temperature </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chemical irritation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Two types of neurons </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A-delta: first pain, sharp </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>C: second pain, dull </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Four distinct processes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transduction-conduction, transmission, modulation & perception. </li></ul></ul>
    4. 9. Pharmacological treatment of pain <ul><ul><li>Regional Anesthesia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NSAIDs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Opioids </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>NMDA-receptor agonists </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alpha-2-receptor agonists </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other agents </li></ul></ul>
    5. 10. Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) <ul><li>Common therapeutic indications </li></ul><ul><li>Common adverse effects </li></ul><ul><li>Different pharmacokinetics and potency </li></ul><ul><li>Different chemical families </li></ul><ul><li>Common mechanism of action (cyclooxygenase inhibition) </li></ul><ul><li>Different selectivities to COX I and II </li></ul><ul><li>Similarities more striking than Differences </li></ul>
    6. 11. NSAIDs: <ul><li>Large and chemically diverse group of drugs with the following properties: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Analgesic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anti-inflammatory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Antipyretic </li></ul></ul>
    7. 12. NSAIDs: Mechanism of Action <ul><li>Inhibits cyclo-oxygenase (prostaglandin synthase) that is responsible for conversion of arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides </li></ul><ul><li>2 isoforms of enzyme </li></ul><ul><li>- COX-1 : beneficial prostaglandins synthesis </li></ul><ul><li>constitutive, present in platelets, blood vessel, stomach and kidney required for physiological functioning. </li></ul><ul><li>- COX-2 : harmful prostaglandins synthesis </li></ul><ul><li>inducible by cytokines & endotoxins at sites of inflammation e.g. joints, also found in kidney & brain responsible for pain-inflammation-fever. </li></ul>
    8. 13. COX Enzyme:Prostaglandin Effects vasodilation Kidney aggregation Platelets protect mucosa Stomach Modulate pain perception Promote fever (hypothalamus) Brain Inflammation Peripheral injury site COX-2: harmful COX-1: beneficial
    9. 14. Effects of COX Inhibition by Most NSAIDS NSAIDs : anti-platelet—decreases ability of blood to clot COX-1 Gastric ulcers Bleeding Acute renal failure COX-2 Reduce inflammation Reduce pain Reduce fever

    13. 18. PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTIONS: Aspirin <ul><li>Analgesic: (300-600mg/day) Analgesia by peripheral inhibition of PG synthesis & increased pain threshold by acting on subcortical site . Analgesia without sedation, loss of consciousness or dependence. </li></ul><ul><li>Antipyretic: (300-600mg/day) </li></ul><ul><li>Reset hypothalamic thermostat by inhibition of PG synthesis, promote heat loss by vasodilation & sweating in fever. </li></ul><ul><li>Anti-inflammatory : (4-6 gm/day). Observed at high doses. By inhibition of PG & other mediators synthesis, T-cell modulation & inhibiting chemotaxis </li></ul>

    36. 41. NSAIDs: Nursing Implications <ul><li>Educate patients about the various side effects of NSAIDs, and to notify their physician if these effects become severe or if bleeding or GI pain occur. </li></ul><ul><li>Patients should watch closely for the occurrence of any unusual bleeding, such as in the stool. </li></ul><ul><li>Enteric-coated tablets should not be crushed or chewed. </li></ul>
    37. 42. NSAIDs: Nursing Implications <ul><li>Monitor for therapeutic effects, which vary according to the condition being treated: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>decrease in swelling, pain, stiffness, and tenderness of a joint or muscle area </li></ul></ul>
