At some point in your life, it’s likely that you’ll be diagnosed with a medical condition or two. And, luckily, whether you suffer from a minor issue or something more serious, you can usually rely on doctors to help get you back on your feet.

If you’re in a coma, for instance, medics may just have to play the waiting game. And one of the reasons why this remains the case is that much of what happens while a patient is comatose is still a mystery – despite recent advances in medical technology.

As a consequence, then, the insights of people who have once been comatose are almost invaluable.
