Why a medically induced coma be helpful for a patient with high blood pressure?

Hi Anon,

A medically induced coma for a patient with intracranial hypertension is actually controversial because there is no evidence that this will actually prevent any brain damage though it does reduce the hypertension. 

Speak to your doctor about this if you would like further details. 

Good luck,
