My sister was sedated for 5 days in ICU. She had now been off of sedation for 24 hours and has not woke up. What is happening?

My son was sedated in the PICU for 14 days and he woke right up. Then he was sedated a second time for 7 days and it took him 2 days to wake up. It depends on how quickly your body gets rid of the sedation meds. I hope this helped you. Good luck

You have to ask the hospital. They know what is normal and what is not.

Ask her doctor. No one here will know

I agree you should talk to the doctor. I will say that I've read that it is not unusual for a person to take time to wake after a prolonged sedation.

The medicine stays in your system until your body gets rid of it.

You should talk to the doctor about that. But she is probably just taking a while to come out of her sedation. Not everyone just comes right out of it
