    Medics: Is this for real?

    I just read on the pinnacle ridge extreme race web site:

    “First aid kit (minimum contents: bandage, plasters, pain killers but please
    NO ANTI INFLAMMATORIES [NSAIDS] as these have been known to cause renal failure in race situations)”

    I’m aware of a correlation and increased risk of renal failure to nasaids in already compromised patients: I just looked it up. But if that risk were other than small they would not get a license as an OTC medicine.

    I am certainly not aware of competitors ever being carried away because of renal failure SPECIFICALLY because of use of nasaids in race situations as this implies.

    Questions. Is this exaggerating risk? Should RO even be making these judgements?
