How long does it take to recover from a cardiac arrest?
My friend's dad just had a cardiac arrest about a week ago and he has been on life support in the ICU for the entire past week. Does it normally take this long? They've been trying to do tests on him to see how his body responses to different things but they aren't able to bring him to consciousness for too long. The only thing they were able to do so far was to have him blink his eyes and then right after, he started throwing up so they had to sedate him again just because there was a risk of him choking on the vomit.
But anyways, yeah...does it normally take a very long time in the ICU for the patient to be able to breathe on his own? One week is so long compared to the 2 days my dad spent in the ICU after his heart surgery =/
U are wrongly using the word cadiac arrest. Eith cardiac arrest if not recoverd with in minutes, the person dies.
U are probably telling about the ischaemic heart disease. In this period of recovery depends on over all condition of the patient. When his doctors think better, they will let him go home.
