In brief: Coma

Patients dying from a stroke near the end of their life are in a comatose state.
They are unresponsive, the eyes may or may not be open but they are not seeing, they cannot speak and often have deep sonorous respirations like snores and gasps. It is all distressing for a family who is at their bedside.
