Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coma due to global or focal ischemia or hemorrhage is reviewed. Impaired consciousness due to anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy after cardiac arrest is common but prognostically problematic. Recent guidelines need to be refined for those patients who have received therapeutic hypothermia. Strokes, both ischemic and hemorrhagic, can affect the level of consciousness by damaging specific brain structures involved in alertness because of widespread cerebral injury or secondary cerebral or systemic complications.
