AIMS: Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and selective agents (COXIBs) is quite common in our population; however, it is unclear if patterns of use predispose our members to significantly greater risk of cardiovascular side effects. This study was performed to describe the usage patterns of NSAIDs and COXIBs in Canadian Forces.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
