Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that the clinical situation of the patient seems to be really serious and life-threatening.

He may have had an accident, which has lead to a lot of bleeding, and low blood flow to the brain. His heart has stopped (I don't understand if the patient is dead or resuscitated) . From the other hand his brain has been seriously damaged by the trauma.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards!

Dr. Iliri
