Alert but ventilator dependent - Is it possible? - Devesh
28-year-old Devesh, met with an accident while returning back to home. He was riding a bike and was accompanied by two more people. The accident was so dangerous that they were taken to the hospital where he was admitted to the ICU.
It’s been four to five months since he has been admitted to the hospital. He had been unconscious since then and was not responding to any stimuli. His family was worried about him and rushed to the hospital. After reaching the hospital, the family was informed that their Devesh might have suffered some brain injury. The doctors told Devesh’s family that if the swelling in his head did not go down soon, he would die. So, they decided to take him to the ICU where he could receive medical attention. As a consequence of the accident, Devesh has been paralyzed due to spinal cord injury. His little brother takes care of him now and visits the hospital every day.
After being admitted to the hospital, Devesh was given the best treatment possible. Doctors tried their level best to help him regain some movement in his body. However, nothing worked out for Devesh. He remained bedridden for almost four months and still is. (Tweet)
Devesh’s Family Background
Devesh belongs to the underprivileged section and does not have much savings or funds to get a better life. He needs to earn daily to cope up with regular basic expenses.There are four members of Devesh’s family: his wife, child, younger brother, and parents. As his wife is a housewife and his child is so small that he needs a father figure, he was the only earning member of his family. Since nobody in the family earns it is very difficult to take care of the family. Everything in the family has stopped since the accident. Nobody can live a normal life since the incident. And we all can agree that it affects everybody’s lives in the family if even one member is in trouble.
It has been very difficult for all the family members as they don’t know whether they will have anything to eat or not in the coming days as the treatments cost a lot. Survival after such conditions is also very difficult because of these types of injuries, which means that individuals must rely on family and friends for support. In some cases, insurance companies will cover a small percentage of expenses related to accidents but this rarely covers all costs associated with the aftermath of an injury. This has made his and his family’s life not less than a mess.
