Hello,

As per the description, she is not able to breathe on her own due to terminally ill condition; and she is on ventilator support.

Prognosis is very questionable depending upon the underlying cause of it. I will suggest you to consult with MRI and other reports for better evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel
