ER Stone Care
For someone in the er, the best intervention is to give toradol
, if: no anti-coagulation, not allergic, no GI ulcers and no abnormal creatinine
Studies have proven toradol to be more effective than narcotics in first line therapy. Narcotics can then be used in lesser quantities for ongoing management. Plus the anti-inflammatory properties aid in stone passage by reducing ureteral swelling.
