Answer

Analgesics

Most analgesics have sedating properties, which are beneficial for patients who have sustained painful trauma.

Morphine sulfate (Duramorph, Astramorph, MS Contin, Kadian)

Morphine is the drug of choice for narcotic analgesia due to reliable and predictable effects, safety profile, and ease of reversibility with naloxone.

Various IV doses are used; the dose is commonly titrated until the desired effect is obtained.
