What If You Underwent Coma

SCIENCE

Written by:

Coma is a situation where a person is unconscious for a period of time without dying.

Coma is a state of unconsciousness in which a person cannot be awakened; fails to respond normally to painful stimuli, light, or sound; lacks a normal wake-sleep cycle; and does not initiate voluntary actions. A person in a state of coma is described as being comatose. A distinction is made in the medical community between a real coma and a medically induced coma, the former is a result of circumstances beyond the control of the medical community, while the latter is a means by which medical professionals may allow a patient’s injuries to heal in a controlled environment.

A comatose person exhibits a complete absence of wakefulness and is unable to consciously feel, speak, hear, or move.] For a patient to maintain consciousness, two important neurological components must function. The first is the cerebral cortex—the gray matter that forms the outer layer of the brain. The other is a structure located in the brain-stem, called Reticular activating system (R.A.S).

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FALL IN COMA…

  • YOU CANNOT HEAR SOUND.

  • YOU CANNOT FELL PAIN OR ANY SENSE ON YOU WHOLE BODY.

  • YOU CANNOT TASTE FOOD. ( THERE WILL BE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TASTE OF WATER AND TASTE OF JUICE..)

  • WHEN YOU COME OUT OF COMA, YOU WILL JUST FEEL LIKE YOU JUST WOKE UP FROM A REGULAR SLEEP.

  • YOUR HEART BEAT, YOU BLOOD CIRCULATION ETC WILL BE ALL RIGHT EXCEPT YOUR BODY DOESN’T FUNCTION AND YOU ARE LITERALLY LIKE A DEAD PERSON.

  • YOU CANNOT EVEN OPEN YOUR EYES.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE CAUSES OF COMA

Diabetes: If the blood sugar levels of a person with diabetes rise too much, this is known as hyperglycemia. If they become too low, this is hypoglycemia. If hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia continue for too long, a coma can result.

Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen: If the supply of oxygen to the brain is reduced or cut off, for example, during a heart attack, stroke, or near drowning, a coma may result.

Infections: Severe inflammation of the brain, spinal cord, or tissues surrounding the brain can result in coma. Examples include encephalitis or meningitis.

Toxins and drug overdose: Exposure to carbon monoxide can result in brain damage and coma, as can some drug overdoses.

Traumatic brain injuries: Road traffic accidents, sports injuries, and violent attacks that involve a blow to the head can cause coma.
