Hi doctor,

My brother is 51 years old. He has got HIE status after MRI reports. He had a sudden heart attack. Can he be cured? When can he return to his normal life?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • HIE (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy) occur due to compromise of blood or oxygenation to brain tissue and the degree of damage depending on the duration of lack of blood or oxygen.
  • And, the prognosis depends on the extent of brain injury. If more injury, then poor prognosis.
  • There is no definite cure to established HIE. Only, medication can be given if patient is having superadded seizures.
  • No one can predict the number of days to return to normal life. Only with time, you will come to know how much he is improving.
