Formula One legend Michael Schumacher has been in an artificially induced coma at the University Hospital in Grenoble since he fell and hit his head while skiing in French Alps on Sunday Dec. 29th.

article-0-06684d4200000514-501_634x435Doctors say patients with such injuries are placed in artificially induced coma to help the brain heal but such measures normally last only a maximum of two weeks.

Schumacher has been in his coma for nearly a month and doctors fear he could remain in a ‘permanent vegetative state’ even if he wakes from his coma. This means that if doctors do bring him out of his artificially induced coma he would be unable to speak, move or feed himself. Too sad!!

The more he stays in the medically induced coma, the more hope dwindle for a full recovery.

Jean-Marc Orgogozo, Professor of Neurology at the University of Bordeaux,said: ‘Every day, every week in a coma the chances decline that the situation is improving. A persistent vegetative state is one in which patients with severe brain damage are in a state of partial arousal rather than true awareness.
