Hi, my brother has been in ICU now with Pneumococcal Menigitis. They’ve stopped his sedation and he still has the tube down his throat - clearly if his brain function was on the mend His response would be to become stressed at the tube, but there’s no response other than occasional reflex spasms in his hands. Does anybody have any experience of PMenigitus, whereby they have come off sedation and not responded to having the tube down their throat?? Does anybody have experience of PMenigitus and how long were you or the people you know on life support for?
My brother is 53 years old.
