Is an induced coma a treatment for spinal cord injury?


Answer by  Brett (7986)

Not at all. Induced coma is simply a treatment for a brain that has swelled. Has nothing to do with a spinal cord injury.


Answer by  John (9008)

An induced coma can be a treatment for a very severe neurological injury. It is only done for very serious injuries, and is not commonly needed. However, if the injury is bad enough, and particularly if there is also some brain damage, it can happen. Basically, it is a way to keep the person still and let the body heal.
