Some of you may or may not know about locked in syndrome. It is as it sounds. This rare condition, usually onset after a traumatic brain injury, makes people unable to move their body; in a sense they are ‘locked inside’ their own body.
While there is no cure for locked-in syndrome, researchers are looking to locked in syndrome patients who had an onset from a drowning incident. Possibly finding the cause will help find treatments and perhaps a cure some day in the future. In cases of drowning, this research may help resuscitators to find signs of the syndrome.
