The internist's function in the care of a hemiplegic patient must be viewed through a wide angle lens to include all the vital systems. The hemiplegic patient must be rehabilitated as a total individual. Tranquilizers have been given in excessive dosages and patients made somnolent. When sedation is necessary, Phenobarbital is as affective as the tranquilizers. Psychic energizers may be helpful in the depressed hemiplegic patient.
