Abstract

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) poses unique physiologic concerns and demands new treatment strategies. The effects of medications administered to the individual with TBI may differ vastly from other patient populations. This article reviews the role of medications salient to the medical and rehabilitative disturbances commonly encountered with TBI: venous thromboembolism, heterotopic ossification, gastric motility, peptic ulcer disease, genitourinary function, and skin integrity.
