Mr. Marsh was in a coma and attached to life support machines.
After he came out of the coma, he underwent a year or so of therapy.
The accident did a hell of a job and the long coma and operations further messed him up.
He's alive, but he's been in a coma for a week.
Could the fact that Howie's brain waves are somehow different after his lengthy coma and all the operations he endured be effected by what you were doing?
The doctor said they could find no reason for him to stay in a coma, except the possibility of brain damage from lack of oxygen or blood loss.
I read that when people wake up from a coma, it's always gradual.
It forms a valuable treatment in diabetic coma and eclampsia, acting by diluting the toxins in the blood.
CANES VENATICI (" The Hounds," or "the GREYHounds"), in astronomy, a constellation of the northern hemisphere named by Hevelius in 1690, who compiled it from the stars between the older asterisms Ursa Major, Bodtes and Coma Berenices.
Hence it is of the utmost importance to avoid the use of salts of this metal whenever it is necessary - as in diabetic coma - to increase the alkalinity of the blood rapidly.
The extension of the image away from the axis or size of field available for covering a photographic plate with fair definition is a function in the first place of the ratio between focal length and aperture, the longer focus having the greater relative or angular covering power, and in the second a function of the curvatures of the lenses, in the sense that the objective must be free from coma at the foci of oblique pencils or must fulfil the sine condition (see Aberration).
The earlier arrangement of two lenses of the Huygenian eye-piece (see Microscope) having foci with ratio of 3 to I, gives a fairly large flat field of view approximately free from distortion of tangential lines and from coma, while the Mittenzw ?
In order to secure the advantage of the principal focal plane of the eye-piece being well outside of the field-lens and at the same time to obtain a large flat field of view with oblique achromatism and freedom from coma and distortion, there is no better construction than the modified Kellner eye-piece (fig.
The unsymmetrical form of the meridional pencil - formerly the only one considered - is coma in the narrower sense only; other errors of coma have been treated by A.
The aberrations of the third order are: (1) aberration of the axis point; (2) aberration of points whose distance from the Aberra- axis is very small, less than of the third order - the tions of deviation from the sine condition and coma here fall together in one class; (3) astigmatism; (4) curvature of the field; (5) distortion.
(2) The condition for freedom from coma in the third order is also of importance for telescope objectives; it is known as " Fraunhofer's condition."
(4) After eliminating the aberration on the axis, coma and astigmatism, the relation for the flatness of the field in the third order is expressed by the " Petzval equation," I 1 = o, where is the radius of a refracting surface, n and n' the refractive indices of the neighbouring media, and / the sign of summation for all refracting surfaces.
Amongst these, the most important is fever with increased protein metabolism, attended with disturbances of the circulatory and respiratory systems. Nervous symptoms, somnolence, coma, spasms, convulsions and paralysis are of common occurrence.
Intense drowsiness yields to sleep and coma which ends in death from failure of the respiration.
There may be bleeding from the nose, cutaneous congestion, deafness, blindness, coma or delirium, and even death from cardiac failure.
In large doses it has a depressant action on the nervous system, leading even to coma and total abolition of reflex action.
In acute mania it acts like hyoscyamine in producing sleep. In large doses stramonium is a narcotic poison producing the wellmarked stages of exaltation of function, diminution of functional activity, and later loss of function, sinking into coma and paralysis.
Death may be preceded by coma, but consciousness is often maintained to the end.
These anastigmatic lenses, which are manufactured up to X 40, are chromatically and spherically corrected, and for a middle diaphragm the errors of lateral pencils, distortion, astigmatism and coma are eliminated.
He diverged from Ptolemy when he placed the asterisms Coma Berenices and Antinous upon the level of formal constellations, Ptolemy having 1 The historical development of star-catalogues in general, regarded as statistics of the co-ordinates, &c., of stars, is given in the historical section of the article 'ASTRONOMY.
While Howie, between his brain damage, operations and lengthy coma created a rare combination of mental soup, could we say with any certainty that his ability was absolutely unique to him?
In dream land, or Oz, or somewhere over the rainbow, except his mom just drifted into a coma and her husband acts like a dick and wishes Howie would take the next coach out of Dodge.
They thought her too young to understand words like coma and deteriorating, and they accused her of lying when she said she could help him.
Yes. She was hurt by an Immortal and is in a coma of sorts.
No one said it, but internet research indicated that a coma which lasted more than two weeks might become permanent.
The doctor said there was no reason for him to remain in a coma and he might wake up any day.
The euphoria of his awakening from the coma passed as other symptoms persisted.
The internet said that a coma was basically a sleep disorder.
So, once a person came out of the coma, could they go back into it?
Hopefully it was the remnants of the coma and would wear off.
"And so when you woke up from the coma, you couldn't speak," she said.
The docs put you in a coma for over a week in order to transplant half your organs.
If the patient survives the coma, recovery is complete and as a rule rapid, without secondary symptoms.
The name Coma Berenices, applied to a constellation, commemorates this incident.
Carmen tried to stay optimistic, but a part of her mind lingered fearfully on the thought that he might remain in a coma the rest of his life.
In such cases the acute collapse occurs in company with both superficial and deep anaesthesia of the limbs, and is soon followed by coma terminating in death.
