Abstract: Researchers who surveyed usage patterns, effectiveness, and possible adverse effects of ketorolac tromethamine among National Football League players found some common themes among the 31 teams that responded. Though isolated adverse events were noted, most team healthcare providers felt that ketorolac is effective and safe when the team physician directs its use.
