WCD Topic 7: Treatment

This session will provide an overview of the different ways we can try to improve recovery. It also features the case of a patient who paradoxically responded to Zolpidem (he “wakes up” when he takes zolpidem/ambien/stilnox, but just for the time of the medication, after goes back to previous state) and what we learned from that case.

Patient Story: A case of zolpidem paradoxical responder: Nicholas Schiff (USA)

Education: Neurostimulant drug therapy in DoC: Paola Saccucci (Canada)

Research: Brain stimulation therapy: Xuehai Wu (China), Guoyi Gao/Junfeng Feng (China)
