Details and patient eligibility

About

Patients presented with acute pain from renal colic, the standard of care are prescribed NSAIDs, most common drug used is intramuscular (IM) Diclofenac injected at the gluteal muscle. Due to adverse effects in some patients, the nursing council has banned the injection by nurses. Since then, there has been a change in treatment by using intravascular (IV) Tramadol. According to various research, Diclofenac has a higher efficacy in controlling pain compared to other medications. In clinical practice, Tramadol has less efficacy of decreasing pain and a longer onset of action. At presence, there has been no research performed comparing the efficacy between these two drugs especially from the viewpoint of time dimension.
