Locked In-Syndrome

Locked in syndrome can be caused by traumatic brain injury, medication overdose, complication of a stroke and diseases of the circulatory system. This is where the individual can feel trapped and unable to communicate, which can be a frightening prospect.

 

At Komplex Care we work closely with external professionals, eg Speech and Language Therapists, physiotherapists to maintain communication and muscle tone which is paramount for the client.

 

We are experienced in ventilator management if required, together with other clinical needs such as PEG, bladder and bowel management and tracheostomy care.

 

We take a flexible approach, ensuring we explore all options to enhance the quality of life and maximise their abilities.
