Heart Beats Again After Being Sentenced To Death?
, I want to ask, in a coma, initially sentenced to no longer exist, but then a heartbeat and pulse appear, can this coma patient be helped?
Coma is a state of decreased consciousness. Consciousness was assessed using the Glasgow coma scale / GCS. GCS is seen from the eye opening response, verbal response to commands, and movement responses to commands. It is said to be a comma if the GCS score is 3-8.
In a comatose patient, the airway and vital signs should be noted. Patients can fall into a coma due to many things such as stroke, head injury, diabetes, seizures, meningitis, encephalitis, poisoning, alcohol or drug overdose, brain tumor, lack of oxygen, and liver failure.
Additional examinations performed on comatose patients also vary and are adjusted to the suspicions of the examining doctor, for example by blood tests, CT scans, cardiac records, MRI, and lumbar puncture tests. This examination aims to find out the cause of the coma so that more appropriate management can be given. Treatment is given according to the cause.
Regarding the rate of cure / can be helped or not also very much depends on the cause of the coma itself, the duration of the coma, and the treatment given. When the comatose patient will wake up is also uncertain.
I suggest that you ask the doctor who treats the patient directly about the patient's condition, the cause of the coma, the cure rate, and the treatment plan given because the treating doctor is the one who understands the patient's condition better.
