SummaryThe alterations of the vital functions consequent on unconsciousness states are the main cause of the progressive deterioration and eventually of the fatal outcome of comatose patients.For practical purposes coma has been classified in seven degrees of increasing severity; respiratory, circulatory, metabolic and thermoregulation alterations as well as pathologic motor activity typical of each degree of coma are described. Standard resuscitation treatments for the correction of these… Expand

The Munich Coma Scale ( MCS )
SYNOPSIS The level of coma can be measured by the assessment of changes of behaviour after different intensities of stimulation. Two additive scales (Guttman scales) for susceptibility to stimulationExpand

Severe head injuries
TLDR
In cases of severe head injury with primary or secondary involvement of the brain stem in which unconsciousness is prolonged, general muscular rigidity and hyperpyrexia are present, and in which respiratory complications are the rule rather than the exception, the anasthetist must be prepared to play his part as a member of the neurosurgical team and to spend a great deal of time in the ward during the first fortnight, or until the patient has recovered consciousness.

Recovery from coma and decerebrate rigidity of young patients following head injury
TLDR
It is emphasized that even prolonged states of coma and decerebration may be followed in young subjects by recovery or marked improvement, therefore, every effort must be made to prevent secondary complications. Expand
Protracted Unconsciousness Due to Closed Head Injury
TLDR
There are few detailed reports in the literature of the course and prognostic significance of protracted defect in state of consciousness due to closed head injury, but consideration will be given to these factors. Expand
The effect of urea and invert sugar (Urevert) on cerebral damage occurring after cardiac arrest.

TLDR
The conclusion is that intravenous administration of urea, invert sugar and water did not protect the dog after measured periods of cerebral anoxia and urea does not have the same beneficial effect as does hypothermia and it is not a replacement for Hypothermia after resuscitation of the heart.

TLDR
The hypothermic state may be divided into 4 stages: clinical, surgical, deep or profound, and frozen or supercooled; each, within prescribed limits, is compatible with survival and restoration of complete integrity upon rewarming. Expand

TLDR
Nach intrakranialen Operationen und Schadel-ttirnverletzungen sind AtemstSrungen als Ursache anoxischer Komplikat ionen yon h6chster Bedeutung gefunden, wenn eine schwere Anoxie rechtzeitig nicht behoben wird. Expand
Verlaufsuntersuchungen der Serumelektrolyte Chlor, Natrium und Kalium bei neurochirurgischen Patienten
TLDR
In peripheral and spinal operations in neurosurgical patients there is a transitory reduction of the serum sodium and chloride and a rise of serum potassium and the alteration of electrolyte concentrations are mostly within the normal range and do not require special treatment. Expand
A NEW METHOD FOR ANALYSIS OF RESPIRATORY WORK BY MEASUREMENTS OF THE ACTUAL POWER AS A FUNCTION OF GAS FLOW, PRESSURE AND TIME: A Preliminary Report
A method is presented by which it is possible to analyse the respiratory work by measurements of the actual power as a function of gas flow, pressure and time.
