Took sleeping injection for severe nausea, pulse stopped brain not getting oxygen, making loud noises. Is it coma ?
hello sir i wanted to consult about my uncle he is a kidney paitent and three days before due to sevear u neasyness he took sleeping injection and painkillers in large quntity his pulse had stopped doctors here tried hard and got his pulse back but now he is not responding they say oxygen didnt reach his brain for three minute he is showin unusual breathing pattern and only responding to very loud noises by opening eyes is this state of koma can he come back from here he actually also requires dialysis frm time to time plus he is a diabetic paitent
It looks like coma , but if his other blood examination is normal ,his blood pressure is normal and he is to be ventilated for 24-48 hrs hten if his sensorium not improved then outcome will not be good.
