WAKING UP AFTER A CARDIAC ARREST RESUSCITATION

My wife 51years of age had cardiac arrest and resuscitated after four attempts by the doctors who were there when it happened. This is two weeks going and can only open her eyes at day 3 and nothing more. She is presently in Intensive Care? This is very traumatic for me and my children. Please advice on the way forward.

  • I don't know about how each person reacts after sedation - I can only imagine - each person is different. Apparently it took me 11 days to fully wake up after sedation

  • I'm very sorry to hear about your wife's situation.

    Have they done a CT/MRI of the brain?

    In any case, have a look for more information here
