He visits the outpatient clinic with the specific question for advice with respect to pain management, especially for his hand pain since he is a technician in a dental laboratory. However, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) are contra-indicated by his ischemic cardiomyopathy, cerebral vascular accident, hypertension and ulcus duodeni in the past.
