Road accident patient undergoing treatment in corporate Hospital ,immdediately after the accident patient was brought into the Hopsital ina unconscious state with severe head injury, he was operated on the head bleeding was stopped , scan showed no major damage to brain, pat had gone into Coma Glasgow coma scale 4, and had been on ventilator 2nd day trachetomy was done, patient after being on ventilator for more than 15 days - started breathing without support GCS still 4,
patient had been on vegetative state-- Doctors stated that we have reveiwed the patient progonosis cannot be predicted and no more specific medication to enhance the progress, please wait and pray------all these days as an Homoeopath in my mind --- what if we give Arnica m /Nat sulph/-- Doctors at the Hospital permitted us to handle the case-- we went into the ICU with bottle of Arnica M 200.
1.How to adminster the medicine since the mouth is closed, we administered 5 drops with the feed and applied Arnica 200 on palms and forehead of the patient, next day patient opened his eyes for the first time in 20 days,but still eyes do not react-- GCS- 5-6.
How do we proceed ???
Dr Ranga sai patient was shifted to the room on 9-1-10, with fever along with seizures especially of hands and face towards the left side.
EEG report showed no signs of convulsions , fits or any abnormality,
By 12 noon pat had severe seizures lasting more than 2 hours breathing deep ,fast, pulse more than 170 pm, extremites icy cold, forehead hot, temperature 101 + profuse sweating the water was dripping down the bed.
A dose of Stramonium 200 1dose was given dilution applied on lips,forehaead and hands after 1 hour patient had sleep for 30 minutes later seizures + but mild on 16-1-10 fever 99 seizures mild by 12 noon again seizures strong with temperature 101 Stram 2001d repeated another dose Stram 200 at 2 pm seizures had deep sleep by 3pm.
pat is able to move his eyes lips icy coldness less--- seems to be responding to voice??
Well done. Happy to see such a courageous act. I know that Arnica must be considered in all traumatic patients ,but what about Hypericum which is Nervous System Arnica? Did you continue curing the comatose patient? Did he/she come back to life?
MY ONE PATIENT IS IN COMA FROM 10 MONTHS,SHE WAS RESPONDING TO CONSTITUTIONAL SIMILIMUM,PULSATILLA 200 SINGLE DOSE.NOW HER PUPILS STARTED MOVING,STARTED RESPONDING TO STIMULUS ON SOLES AND FOREHEAD.
HER URINE OUTPUT WAS INCREASED WHICH IS SIGN OF IMPROVEMENT,BODY IS EXCRETING SOMETHING UT FROM BODY.
MY SUGGESTION IS YOU MUST TALK TO HIS RELATIVES TO KNOW HER CONSTITUTIONAL DRUG FROM HER GENERALS,MENTALS AND REAL NATURTE,THAT CONSTITUTIONAL MEDICINE WILL HELP TO ENERGISE THE VITAL FORCE,AND VITAL FORCE WILL TAKE HER OUT OF THE JAWS OF COMA.
Dr Lovely, we had worked up the constitutional drug for this patient its Agaricus-- since the patient is still in the vegetative state, and is having acute respiratory distress with intermittent fever, profuse sweating with icy coldness of extremites, pulse rate going upto 160-170 per minute, we have considered observatory symptoms, yesterday after 60 days patient started breathing on his own without oxygen mask, urine output in unl, stools every 4-5 th days.
In coma cases GCS is guiding factor.
