First of all Welcome Pat and I'm glad you've found us at HealingWell.
This is a very serious condition that your friend seems to be in and I'm not really in a position to answer all your questions. First of all is this coma, medically produced?~to keep her asleep? Or is this a natural coma that occurred due to the massive heart attack. That may seem like a silly question, but sometimes Dr.'s do medicate their patients in these circumstances for other reasons to keep them quiet and asleep for healing purposes.
If they needed to, there would be other tests that they could run. Do you have family members of hers that are there that are willing to speak to you about this? Have you, yourself spoken to any of the hospital staff re her condition?
I know this must be one of the hardest situations that you've ever found yourself in and I am so very sorry for that. My best wishes to you, your friend and her family! Please keep in touch with us and I'll do the best I can to offer some assistance.
