What is a coma during pregnancy?

A coma is a state of unconsciousness that is deeper than sleep, and that usually lasts for a prolonged period. Usually, coma is caused by injury (especially traumatic brain injury) or disease. It lasts for an indefinite amount of time, but it can also be induced intentionally by doctors to protect the brain in certain circumstances. Examples of medical conditions that can lead to coma include strokes, ongoing seizures, diabetes (when it is not controlled, and blood sugar level gets extremely high or extremely low), infections, and tumors. Various toxins also can cause a coma, as can any situation leading to a lack of oxygen reaching the brain, including blood loss, cardiac arrest (lack of effective pumping of the heart), and drowning.
