    Ibuprofen won't do anything. He already has an air mask. And he doesn't need shocking as his heart is beating, unless you wanted to kill him.

    From my limited understanding of medicine there's probs going to be some bone marrow or someother nasty crap floating around his bloodstream from the fractured humerus.

    Once he's been revived again - I'd probably look into that, as a likely cause of the problems.


    Given that he's the age he is, and that he's just survived being runover, but his body keeps giving up on him, in honesty I wouldn't say he has much of a prognosis, sadly.

    No this is wrong ... If the patients has presented as being fit and well previously on no medications then you can never render it as a negative prognosis.... You need to be more optimistic and and find solutions quick and fast ... Although this situation is never real because the patient must ... MUST be on some medications and have some cvs, bleeding, repiratory disorder .... What is the reason for asking such a question anyway OP ..?

    I don't know if you're a doctor, but that honestly the stupidest doctrine I've ever heard (nothing personal).

    I could be a tee-totalling, vegetarian, Olympian, but if I get ****ed up in an car accident, I will get ****ed up in a car accident.

    Fair enough your medical history/what shape your body was in before the accident, can determine your recovery/resistance to the injuries, but after a certain point, it cannot compensate for a massive trauma.

    (Moreover any recovery/resistance ability must surely be reduced due in no small part to the seniority of his years)

    Not being pessimistic (as you seem to think I am), just realistic.

    He doesn't have a bloodstream, so there is nothing for "nasty crap" to float around in, whether it "probably" be bone marrow or not.
