Coma Support Group

A coma is a profound state of unconsciousness. A comatose patient cannot be awakened, fails to respond normally to pain or light, does not have sleep-wake cycles, and does not take voluntary actions. Coma may result from a variety of conditions, including intoxication, metabolic abnormalities, central nervous system diseases, and hypoxia.

    Husband in coma for 2 months 5 days

    My husband fell into a coma June 7 2014 after his heart stopped and he stopped breathing. I called 911 I tried cpr. The ambulance men did cpr, the hospital did cpr and after 45 minutes got his heart started again. Now he is in a coma from lack of oxygen.I hate myself. If I had done the cpr instead of calling 911 or done it better things would be different. He has gone from the intensive care...
