The objective of this study is to evaluate whether use of TRMDU in addition to medication review leads to improved outcomes and reduced health care costs for patients when compared with medication review alone. The study will be conducted in patients assigned to Department of Defense (DOD) Warrior Transition Units (WTU's), similar DOD units, and VA polytrauma centers.
The military has been witnessing an increased number of patients with combat related impairments such as traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder and polytrauma which has lead to sub optimal medication self management. TRMDU is a medical device developed by INRange Systems Inc. that delivers medications and emits a sound alert to assist the patient. It can be used in a hospital, clinic, or residential setting. It can be remotely accessed by the health care professionals, and it allows physicians and other prescribers to remotely change scheduling or adjust prescriptions.
Use of TRMDU in hospital settings is expected to improve outcomes by improving medication self management, increasing adherence, reducing medication errors, and thereby associated costs. Further, it may contribute to overall improvement in a patient's psychological well-being and quality of life.

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate whether data made by the ClearView System can be used to detect whether someone has a traumatic brain injury and how severe the injury is.
Novel biomarkers of traumatic brain injury (TBI) have been discovered in laboratory animal models. The objective of this study is to find whether similar markers are detectable in the body...
The aim of the study is to measure the effect of Finnish physician-staffed EMS unit treatment methods on traumatic brain injury (TBI) patient prognosis.
To determine the prognosis of adult patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and diffuse axonal injury (DAI).
Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability, yet many predictors of outcome are not precise enough to guide initial clinical decision-making. Although increasingly used in the earl...
Traumatic brain injury refers to a broad range of neurological, cognitive, and emotional factors that result from the application of an external force to the head. Individuals recovering from traumati...
There is limited research on communicative recovery during the early stages after a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) in adults.
A relationship between reduced brain tissue oxygenation and poor outcome following severe traumatic brain injury has been reported in observational studies. We designed a Phase II trial to assess whet...
Prolonged unconsciousness from which the individual cannot be aroused, associated with traumatic injuries to the BRAIN. This may be defined as unconsciousness persisting for 6 hours or longer. Coma results from injury to both cerebral hemispheres or the RETICULAR FORMATION of the BRAIN STEM. Contributing mechanisms include DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY and BRAIN EDEMA. (From J Neurotrauma 1997 Oct;14(10):699-713)
A form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
Traumatic injuries to the cranium where the integrity of the skull is not compromised and no bone fragments or other objects penetrate the skull and dura mater. This frequently results in mechanical injury being transmitted to intracranial structures which may produce traumatic brain injuries, hemorrhage, or cranial nerve injury. (From Rowland, Merritt's Textbook of Neurology, 9th ed, p417)
Bleeding within the brain as a result of penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Traumatically induced hemorrhages may occur in any area of the brain, including the CEREBRUM; BRAIN STEM (see BRAIN STEM HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC); and CEREBELLUM.
