Kurtis Musewicz learned the hard way that fireworks can be terribly dangerous. And a first-of-its-kind study by UW Medicine identifies those fireworks that cause the most damage.
HIPRC Director Dr. Monica Vavilala and UW plastic surgery resident Dr. Brinkley Sandvall discuss the results, and conversations, coming out of a new study on the danger of fireworks in this story from Q13 FOX.
July 4th weekend is the most busy, and most sad, time of year for the hand service at Harborview. See the attached Seattle Times article about research my partner Jeff Friedrich MD and colleagues have done about our experience. Blast injuries to the hand disable people for life, and fireworks can often be unpredictable. Please leave fireworks to the professionals this year.

Valuable information to discuss with a doctor regarding pain management for sure, but it's important to emphasize the absolute, or real, increase in cardiovascular is very low for most people. This is mentioned in the article, but the title of the piece is a little more dramatic. For example, if your chance of heart attack in a year is 0.5%, then an increase relative risk of 23% means your risk of heart attack becomes 0.6%, or an absolute increase in risk of 0.1%, which may be acceptable to you if you are in a lot of pain. NSAIDs are a valuable substitute for opioid medications after broken bones and surgery, and helps avoid the risks of dependency associated with opioids. In those kinds of cases, NSAIDs (combined with Acetaminophen and other medications) are very valuable to your health and wellbeing.
