Abstract
Post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) after traumatic brain injury (TBI) comprises anterograde amnesia (AA), disorientation and retrograde amnesia (RA). However, RA is often neither assessed nor emphasized. A recent study demonstrated that, whilst AA and disorientation were both present in non-TBI in-patients uniformly taking opioids, RA was absent. This suggests potentially significant utility with RA-assessment alone, since opioids are commonly prescribed post-TBI.
