As my father is affected by Acute
Brain Stem Infarct (Pontine Stem Stroke
) which has all the vital functions like breathing, swallowing, sleeping, thinking, movements etc. He got the stroke on 2nd Mar 2012 and now he is able to breath by himself. Swallowing is not properly done, so Ryle's tube is inserted through the nose for his feed. He is not able to move and he is bed - ridden.
On 26th Mar 2013 he vomited some black particles through the Treacheostomy tube.
