Why Bobbi Kristina Brown is in a medical coma


Doctors treating Bobbi Kristina Brown appear to be taking steps to limit brain damage, medical experts say.

The 21-year-old daughter of singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown has been in a medically induced coma since late Saturday, after she was found unconscious in a bathtub at her home in Roswell, Ga.

Police said they found no evidence that drugs or alcohol were factors in Brown's condition.

Inducing coma is a common approach to treating someone who has been deprived of oxygen, says Paul Vespa, a professor of neurosurgery and neurology and director of the neurointensive care unit at the University of California-Los Angeles.

Brain cells die quickly without oxygen, says Robert Glatter, an emergency physician atLenox Hill Hospital in New York. Neither Vespa nor Glatter is involved in Brown's case.
