Quote:
and all these patients should get a CT scan

and all pts with head trauma ( Injury ) shud never recieve morphine as a pain killer

why
?

cuz

1. morphine stimulates analgesia & sedation so this will interefere with assessment of progression of the pt status

2. morphine causes vomiting and nausea which also interferes with acurate diagnosis

3. morphine causes pin point pupil ( diagnostic in morphine poisoning ) which interfes with diagnosis of pontine hemorrhage
