Early detection of consciousness after severe brain injury is critical for establishing an accurate prognosis and planning appropriate treatment.
To investigate the influence of the presence of a tracheostomy tube to assess pain with the Nociception Coma Scale - Revised (NCS-R) in patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC).
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major source of morbidity and mortality in children. The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) can be challenging to calculate in pediatric patients. Our objective was to determin...
There has been a significant evolution of nomenclature with regards to classification of persons with disorders of consciousness (DoC) over the last 100 years. This paper provides a review of the evol...
Increasing evidence links disorders of consciousness (DOC) with disruptions in functional connectivity between distant brain areas. However, to which extent the balance of brain network segregation an...
The objective of this study is to show that the measurement of auditory and vibro-tactile evoked potentials, or the recording of the EEG signal during a motor imaging task, can be used in ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between behaviorally assessed consciousness levels and responsiveness to nociception in patients with disorders of consciousness (...
Minimally Conscious (MCS) or Vegetative State (VS) are disorders of consciousness which often occur following traumatic brain injury or ischemia. These alterations result most of the time ...
Non-invasive brain stimulations techniques have recently shown promising results in patients with disorders of consciousness. Notably, a case reported improvement of level of consciousness...
Patients with acquired brain injury (ABI) often suffer from severe disorders of consciousness (DOC), such as coma, unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS), or minimally conscious state (MC...
Prolonged unconsciousness from which the individual cannot be aroused, associated with traumatic injuries to the BRAIN. This may be defined as unconsciousness persisting for 6 hours or longer. Coma results from injury to both cerebral hemispheres or the RETICULAR FORMATION of the BRAIN STEM. Contributing mechanisms include DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY and BRAIN EDEMA. (From J Neurotrauma 1997 Oct;14(10):699-713)
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
Conditions characterized by persistent brain damage or dysfunction as sequelae of cranial trauma. This disorder may result from DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; BRAIN EDEMA; and other conditions. Clinical features may include DEMENTIA; focal neurologic deficits; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; AKINETIC MUTISM; or COMA.
Bleeding into structures of BRAIN STEM, including the MIDBRAIN; PONS; or MEDULLA OBLONGATA, as the result of CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY is commonly associated. Clinical manifestations may include OCULAR MOTILITY DISORDERS; ATAXIA; PARALYSIS; PERSISTENT VEGETATIVE STATE; and COMA.
A profound state of unconsciousness associated with depressed cerebral activity from which the individual cannot be aroused. Coma generally occurs when there is dysfunction or injury involving both cerebral hemispheres or the brain stem RETICULAR FORMATION.
