Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is in an ICU unit of a Georgia hospital after being found unresponsive in a bathtub, may never recover, says a neurologist familiar with the condition.
Neurologist Eli Zimmerman of Massachusetts General Hospital says Brown’s prognosis will depend on “how much oxygen her brain was getting” at the time of the accident. “Even minutes [without air] can be grim,” Zimmerman says of Brown’s chances at a full recovery. Zimmerman explains. “In some patients, the body temperature is dropped slightly to reduce energy requirements even more, though this is generally only done for 24 hours.” “Once things have stabilized, the medications that are keeping the patient sedated are decreased to be able to get an accurate assessment of how the brain is working,” says Zimmerman. h/t people
