Semi coma, is a condition in which someone has temporary memory loss. The person may not be aware that they are not recalling recent events, but they are still able to function relatively normally. Semi coma is classified according to the severity of the memory loss: minor semi coma (MSA), which is when people have some difficulty remembering recent events but can still carry on a conversation and perform basic tasks; moderate semi coma (MSC), which is when people have more difficulty with recall of recent events but are still able to carry out most activities of daily living; and major semi coma (MSC), which is when people have total or near-total memory loss.
What is semi coma and what are the signs and symptoms?
Semi coma is a medical emergency that results when a person is in a state of extreme unconsciousness and has low brain function. The person may have difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking. In some cases, the person may have no signs of life at all.
There are many different types of semi coma, and each can have different signs and symptoms. However, some of the most common signs and symptoms include:
– Extremely low blood pressure
– Poor response to stimuli (e.g., talking, moving)
– Difficulty breathing or swallowing
– Pale skin and lips
– Weak or absent pulse
What to do if you or someone you know is in semi coma?
If you or someone you know is in a semi coma, the first thing to do is call 911. If the person is breathing, you should give them oxygen and try to keep them comfortable. If the person is not breathing, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) may be necessary.
How to perform CPR if someone is in semi coma?
If you find someone who is unconscious and not breathing, the first thing you should do is call 911. If the person is in a semi coma, CPR may still be able to save their life. Semi coma refers to a state between being completely unconscious and being completely conscious. To perform CPR on a person in a semi coma, follow these steps:
1. Remove any obstructions from the mouth and nose.
2. Open the airway by inserting one or two fingers inside the mouth and pushing up on the tongue.
3. Give chest compressions (30 compressions per minute) while breathing into the victim’s lungs.
4. If the victim is not breathing or has stopped breathing, call for help and begin CPR again.
How to treat semi coma with medication?
If you or a loved one is in a semi coma, the best thing to do is call 911. If the person is not breathing or has no pulse, begin CPR immediately. If the person is breathing but can’t speak, give them CPR and then begin giving them mouth-to-mouth resuscitation if they are not responsive to CPR. If the person is not breathing or has no pulse and you think they may have a brain injury, call for an ambulance and then begin CPR.
How to treat semi coma with surgery?
In a semi coma, the person is conscious but not responsive to stimuli. The best way to treat a semi coma is with surgery to remove the blockage.
Semi coma, medically referred to as a transient global amnesia, is a state in which someone has partial or total memory loss that typically lasts for less than 24 hours.
