Acyclovir Coma Causes and Reviews


A Coma is a deep state of unconsciousness. An individual in a Coma is alive but unable to move or respond to his or her environment. Coma may occur as a complication of an underlying illness, or as a result of injuries, such as brain injury.

A Coma rarely lasts more than 2 to 4 weeks. The outcome for Coma depends on the cause, severity, and site of the damage. People may come out of a Coma with physical, intellectual, and psychological problems. Some people may remain in a Coma for years or even decades. For those people, the most common cause of death is infection, such as pneumonia.
