12 - 24 hours: There is no muscle in a finger, so we have more time to reattach it. Ideally if the amputated part is kept cold, replantation will be possible for 12 to 24 hours after injury. There are reports of fingers that were not kept cold sucessfully replanted up to 24 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bad outcomes: A ruptured brain aneurysm has a 50% immediate mortality, and those folks are not accessible for salvage. Of the remainder, surgery and supportive therapies are very successful, and many have a normal lifespan.

Can someone have acute kidney failure, not know it and die? Or would it eventually get severe enough to where they'd know they need to seek help?
Acute = fast: Acute renal failure can act fast and as it gets severe you'd most likely know about it and seek help, but possibly not soon enough to reverse the condition. Similarly, the problem with chronic renal failure is that you may not catch it early enough to reverse or delay the progression of the disease. Testing can be pretty simple & good treatments frequently are effective so get checked by your doc. ...Read more

I here people say you don't fall asleep if you may have a concussion because you may die and what I want to know is how does it physically kill you?
Not true: Of course, at some point everyone who has a concussion goes to sleep; and obviously the vast, vast majority do not die. What we are trying to watch out for in all people who have had a head injury, is a declining mental status which could be a sign of a more serious injury than a concussion such as a head bleed, and that could potentially kill you. ...Read more

How to die as a boy if you get stabbed in the guts and how can you die if you get stabbed in the appendix?
Odd question: The death from any stab wound to the abdominal area depends on what is cut. If a blood vessel (vein or artery) is hit, someone could bleed out rather quickly and die from hemorrhagic shock (profound low blood pressure). If any part of the bowel, including the appendix, were cut, the leakage of fecal matter and the germs within, would begin a massive infection that could enter the blood & cause it ...Read more
