NeuroLogica Blog Can Zolpidem Wake People from Coma?

I have written here often about coma, and mentioned the zolpidem issue before, but an update is in order. Zolpidem is a sedative given to help.

Parallel to these efforts is research simply looking into how to l which patients in a coma have the potential to recover somewhat or to benefit from such interventions, and which ones are irretrievably gone. These efforts are currently using fMRI and digital EEG to assess brain activity and correlate the activity to careful clinical exam. They have not yet, however, connected any differences to a meaningful difference in outcome.

Researchers may have solved the mystery of why the sleep agent zolpidem has a paradoxical awakening effect in some patients who are.

OBJECTIVES: The common hypnotic, zolpidem, has been reported to temporarily Each assessment involved baseline administration of the Coma Recovery.

These results confirm that clinically significant responses to zolpidem among individuals with disorders of consciousness do occur in a minority of patients and can be replicated. Failure to find a trend toward improved performance on zolpidem among nonresponders suggests a bimodal rather than a graded response to the drug. The fact that only one drug responder was identified in this small study prevents assessment of features characteristic of drug responders.

The common hypnotic, zolpidem, has been reported to temporarily restore consciousness to individuals in the chronic vegetative state.

8.1 Zolpidem; 8.2 Levodopa; 8.3 Baclofen; 8.4 Removal of cold intubated oxygen This condition differs from a coma: a coma is a state that lacks both.

For example, PET studies have shown the identification of residual cognitive function in persistent vegetative state. That is, an external stimulation, such as a painful stimulus, still activates 'primary' sensory cortices in these patients but these areas are functionally disconnected from 'higher order' associative areas needed for awareness. These results show that parts of the cortex are indeed still functioning in 'vegetative' patients (Matsuda et al., 2003).

Medical books (such as Lippincott, Williams, and Wilkins.
