Inability to ambulat: JulianneB ~ from this description, there is inability to ambulate(walk) and no movement of neck, head, chest arms and legs. Were you breathing? This is the description of a comatose individual and if you were not it sounds like a very bad clinical note ! Or perhaps we should see more of the note to decipher! thanks
