Comatose – 601 Words You Need to Know to Pass Your Exam

/ˈkəʊ.mə.təʊs/ (adj)

Definition

in a coma, unconscious, insensible – exhausted or extremely tired due to e.g. physical labor, inert, senseless, sluggish, lethargic, torpid, languid

Example

Many types of problems can cause a coma. Forty percent of comatose states result from drug poisoning. Certain drug use under certain conditions can damage or weaken the synaptic functioning in the ascending reticular activating system (ARAS) and keep the system from properly functioning to arouse the brain. Secondary effects of drugs, which include abnormal heart rate and blood pressure, as well as abnormal breathing and sweating, may also indirectly harm the functioning of the ARAS and lead to a coma.
