A 51-year-old member asked:
Health: when a patient is put into a semi-coma can it affect the brain?
1 doctor answer
Dr. Osman Farooq answered
19 years experience in Pediatric Neurology
Possible: It is possible, but the reason that they are going into a coma is usually more concerning than being placed in the coma medically. If they are being out into a coma, then it will generally be a serious condition.
