How to Treat Conscious Disorders?

Medical Treatment:
Treatment can not guarantee to recover from an impaired consciousness state. It can involve:
  • Exercising their joints gently to prevent them from becoming tight
  • Keep cleaning their skin, teeth, and mouth
  • Provide nutrition via a feeding tube
