In this, the second in a series of articles on practice-related aspects of pharmacology, drug therapy and applied nursing pharmacology, an overview is given of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) as a group, and some perspectives offered on their usefulness in clinical practice. NSAIDs constitute a diverse range of analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory agents, including aspirin, paracetamol and other traditional anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as the selective COX-2 inhibitors. This series uses excerpts and diagrams with permission from the second edition of Pharmacology in Clinical Practice: Application Made Easy for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals, and is compiled and expanded upon by the author.
