Abstract

Coma is a frightening state requiring immediate medical attention. Because the patient's history may E unavailable and the possible causes of coma are numerous, the physician must concurrently support and protect the patient and evaluate the cause of coma. A systematic, orderly approach to diagnosis, using modern diagnostic tools to complement thorough physical examination, can help illuminate and alleviate this often perplexing problem.
