Will someone with 1hz- 4hz come out of a coma. Was told also of ischemic?(lack of oxygen). Has slight myclonic, but when walk in room and talk to patient, hold hand they do calm down. Vent down to 5, bpm is anywhere from 22 up to 30. Does show signs of awareness ie...when talking to patient has facial twitches, tries to open eyes(opens to small slits). Pupils slow in reacting. Occasionally has coughing spree. Would like to know of any treatments, medicines, to try and get brain more into a beta or alpha state. Do constantly talk to patient. Any help greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
I can understand your concern, however your question is very difficult to answer. Delta waves are seen in subcortical lesions, diffuse cortical lesions, metabolic encephalopathy, hydrocephalus, and in deep midline lesions of the brain. The degree and extent of lesions decides the recovery, along with patient's general condition.
This is something which only the treating doctor can throw some light on. Often, even their hands are tied as brain recovery is very difficult to predict. Take care!
