Further study details as provided by Radnor Registry Research, Inc:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Outcomes of pain control measures [ Time Frame: 5 days ]
    1. Change in pain score over follow-up interval;
    2. Healthcare resource utilization during follow-up interval;
    3. Patient satisfaction with therapy;
    4. Return to work in employed cohort.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Satisfaction and Economic Outcomes [ Time Frame: 5 days ]
    1. Effectiveness of work upon return;
    2. Relative adverse effect profiles of three treatment regimens;
    3. Compliance with therapy;
    4. QOL at conclusion of therapy.

Enrollment: 843
Study Start Date: July 2012
Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
NSAID only
Subjects have their pain treated post-ED care with NSAID medication alone
Opioid only
Subjects have their pain treated post-ED care with opioid medication alone
NSAID + Opioid
Subjects have their pain treated post-ED care with NSAID medication and opioid as PRN rescue analgesia

Detailed Description:
Multicenter, observational, prospective, out-of-hospital registry collecting clinical, satisfaction, quality of life, and healthcare resource utilization from subjects discharged after ED care for a specific acute pain syndrome with a clinician-determined analgesic regimen. Subjects are stratified by diagnosis and by regimen based on the treating clinician's judgment. The registry study is independent of ED care and clinician's decision-making.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
at least 800 patients with specific musculoskeletal or visceral pain syndrome

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Eligible subjects will meet the following criteria:

    1. Eligible diagnoses:

      musculoskeletal etiologies: acute extremity fractures sprains/strains acute gouty arthritis visceral etiologies: renal colic dysmenorrhea

    2. Age GTE 18 years;
    3. Decision to discharge from ED to community already made;
    4. Decision to give SPRIX, opioid, OR SPRIX + opioid rescue already made;
    5. Treating clinician deems patient appropriate for continued analgesic management as an outpatient for the next 3-5 days;
    6. Patient has ready touch-tone (mobile or land line) telephone access, provides number (and back-up number, if possible) and agrees (verbal or written consent as mandated by site) to answer and comply with brief IVR questionnaires daily for next 4 days.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Eligible subjects will meet none of the following criteria:

    1. Patient admitted or placed on observation status from ED;
    2. Patient unwilling or unable to comply with telephonic follow-up;
    3. Fracture that requires surgical repair (even if at a later date);
    4. Patient has diagnosis of any chronic pain syndrome;
    5. Patient already routinely takes NSAID or opioid agent;
    6. Treating clinician has reasonable suspicion of drug-seeking behavior or noncompliance;
    7. Nasal abnormality or illness that could affect the absorption of intranasal medication (such as: nasal discharge, rhinitis, acute upper respiratory infection, acute epistaxis, nasal polyp, nasal tumor).
