Pain in Patients with Polytrauma: A Systematic Review [Internet]

Pain in Patients with Polytrauma: A Systematic Review [Internet]

Evidence-based Synthesis Program - Department of Veterans Affairs (US)

Version: September 2008


Pain from polytraumatic injuries poses numerous challenges during and after rehabilitation treatment. Pain assessment and intervention efforts are further complicated when the injuries include TBI. The overall purpose of this project was to identify and synthesize evidence on the assessment and treatment of pain in polytrauma patients.


The combined library contained 3252 citations, of which we reviewed 578 articles at the full-text level. From these, we identified systematic reviews and observational studies that addressed one or more of the key questions. Figure 2 shows the results of the literature search and the organization of themes that emerged for each key question.
