Storyboard Text

  • I am sorry to hear that. Luckily, your doctor has prescribed Ketorolac to treat your pain. This is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drug that effectively treats pain for a maximum of 5 days. 
  • I can administer 30mg of Ketorolac through your IV site every 6 hours as you need it for pain.
  • Nurse Doug, I am having pain from my appendectomy yesterday. I rate it a 5/10.
  • There is a possibility of side effects, but I will monitor for them and treat them if they occur.
  • Ketorolac may make you feel drowsy or dizzy, increase your need to urinate, or give you nausea and diarrhea. I want you to report difficulty breathing, chest pressure, itching, a rash, or pain at your IV site to me immediately.
  • Ketorolac, I have never had that before. Will I have any side effects?
  • I feel better knowing what to watch for. Thanks!

  • Okay, great! This should take around 10 minutes to have an effect. Make sure to use your call-light if you need to use the bathroom. The potential drowsiness could make you fall without my help!
  • Before I give you the first dose, I need to know if you have taken the natural supplements ginkgo or feverfew recently and if you eat garlic often? These can increase the risk of bleeding that NSAIDs have. 
  • No, I don't believe in supplements and I hate garlic!
