Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

Michael Schumacher's lucky bracelet found at site of skiing accident in France




Lucky charm ... This photo taken on October 1, 2006 shows Ferrari's German driver Michael Schumacher celebrating on the podium after winning the Chinese Grand Prix, while wearing his lucky bracelet on his right wrist.


FORMULA One champion Michael Schumacher's lucky charm has been found at the scene of his tragic skiing accident.

Rescuers reportedly found the African bracelet buried in the snow, German newspaper Bild reports. Superstitious Schumacher wore it at all times, even during Formula One races.

After the lucky charm was discovered missing at the hospital, his rescuers offered to scour the site of his accident to recover it.

The champion driver's condition continues to be described as "stable", although his manager Sabine Kehm added that the 45-year-old remains in a medically induced coma in hospital since an off-piste fall in the French Alps nearly three weeks ago.

"Unfortunately I have to repeat that any information regarding Michael's health not coming from the doctors treating him or from his management must be treated as pure speculation,'' Ms Kehm said.

"I also repeat that Michael's family is very happy and confident with the work of the team of doctors treating Michael, and they trust them completely.''

Investigators probing the crash have ruled out faulty skis, inadequate signage and excessive speed as reasons for the accident, in which he slammed his head against a rock.

Schumacher appears to have skied on a partially covered rock, lost his balance and fallen on another rock further down, according to the prosecutor in charge of the investigation.

The impact was so strong it split his helmet in two.

Schumacher dominated Formula One before retiring in 2012, winning more titles than any other driver and enjoying 91 Grand Prix victories between 1994 and 2004.

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

His 1998 Ferrari F300 sold for 1.7 million at the Barrett Jackson Car Auction this weekend. It was already going to go up for auction before his accident.

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

Fears grow for Michael Schumacher as former F1 champion remains in coma




More than three weeks after former Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher suffered a severe head injury while skiing in France, fears are reportedly growing that the German driver will never make a full recovery.

Schumacher has been kept in a medically induced coma at a hospital in the Alpine town of Grenoble since falling and hitting his head on rocks December 29. Doctors have performed two emergency operations and have pronounced his condition as stable.

However, the Austrian news website Format reports that the seven-time world champion's friends and family are increasingly concerned that Schumacher may be suffering from Apallic syndrome, or a persistent vegetative state. It reports that Schumacher is being "fed there with probes, washed daily and moved again and again to avoid bed sores."

"Every day, every week in a coma the chances decline that the situation is improving," Jean-Marc Orgogozo, professor of neurology at the University of Bordeaux, told Britain's Daily Mirror.

Writing in the same paper, British neurosurgeon Colin Shieff said that it was far too early to make a firm diagnosis of Apallic syndrome, "but it is correct for doctors to warn (Schumacher's) family at this stage."

Schumacher's wife, Corinna, issued a statement on the driver's website Saturday saying "We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael which still are being sent. That gives us strength ... We all know, he is a fighter and will not give up!"

Michael Schumacher: Felipe Massa praying for ex-Ferrari driver

Felipe Massa says he is praying for seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher every day.



Schumacher, 45, remains in an induced coma after suffering brain injuries in a skiing accident on 29 December.

"Dear Michael, my great friend, you helped me so much in my career, and I pray for you every day," Massa, Schumacher's Ferrari team-mate in 2006, wrote on the manufacturer's website.

"I want to see you stronger than ever, just as always. I give you a big hug."

Schumacher remains in a stable but critical condition in hospital in Grenoble after hitting his head on a rock when skiing at the French Alpine resort of Meribel.

His wife Corinna is maintaining a constant bedside vigil and recently issued her thanks for messages of support, insisting her husband "is a fighter (who) will not give up".

Massa, 32, recently competed in an annual karting race in his native Brazil and wore Schumacher's name on his visor.

The pair represented Ferrari during Schumacher's final season in a 10-year spell with the Italian constructor.

The German finished second in the driver's championship, behind Fernando Alonso, with Massa in third.

This is all becoming very grim news for Michaels future

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

It is too early to diagnose Michael Schumacher as being in a permanent vegetative state




Consultant Neurosurgeon Colin Shieff says, however, that it is correct for doctors to warn the F1 legend's family of potential Apallic Syndrome.






Apallic Syndrome is a diagnosis that cannot be verified until many months have passed after the initial trauma, which could be a brain injury, stroke or poisoning.

The individual is obviously alive - they have not died - and they have fairly basic responses; they do not need help with breathing or blood circulation.

They do not respond to things going on outside them but there are events that indicate that there is ‘a person still present’.

People with Apallic Syndrome do show responses equivalent to waking up, showing anger, hunger or pleasure but not with the consistency that you and I would show.

The majority of doctors now acknowledge that whatever the injury a kind of recovery is possible.

However, there is dead, there is walking and talking - and in between there is a huge spectrum of different levels of responsiveness.

In my own professional personal experience it would be too early to put any such label on Michael Schumacher, but it is correct for doctors to warn his family at this stage - and it is absolutely horrible for doctors to watch.

There are situations worse than dying from an injury.

Mr Shieff is a neurosurgeon at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in central London. He is also a trustee for Headway, the charity that raises awareness of brain injury.

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

The problem with the definition "Apallic syndrome" is that it's not apallic at all. That definition ASSumed at least temporary loss of the entire cortical functioning, but when stimulus-related cortical activations were demonstrated in patients in Vegetative State, that definition ceased to make sense. We can talk about Vegetative State, or Persistent Vegetative State; 32 years after the definition "Appallic syndrome" was coined, Jennett and Plum wrote an article and added as a subtitle: "A syndrome in search of a name". 'nuff said.

For example, according to the Royal College of Physicians' guidelines, the definition of a "continuous vegetative state" for patients in a vegetative state for more than four weeks is correct, and a medical definition of a permanent vegetative state can be made if, after exhaustive testing and a customary 12 months of observation, a medical diagnosis that it is impossible by any informed medical expectations that the mental condition will ever improve.

So, unless these specialists know something that nobody else (including the doctors who are actually taking care of him) know, they are just spreading pessimistic messages of despair, i don't know the why, but craving for attention is a possible reason, it's like to go to Philippines and say: "you know, last year that evil Typhoon killed 6,200 of you. Well, THIS year (2014) a tsunami (or some earthquake) can kill many more of you! Think about it!"
Helpful & nice, isn't it?

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

He'll be very lucky to come out of this in the same (mental) shape as he was before. I've had friends go though a similar situation, and they are not the same person when they're released from hospital. Brain injuries are traumatic, and almost always result in a personality change, and loss of skills and abilities

Re: Michael Schumacher Injured in Skiing Accident in France

Michael Schumacher's doctors still have 'no plans' to wake him from medically-induced coma, say reports.




Doctors battling to save the life of Formula One legend Michael Schumacher have no plans to wake him from the coma, it was claimed today.

The seven-times world champion has been in an artificially-induced coma after he suffered brain injuries in a French Alps ski-ing crash 26-days ago.


Neurosurgeons at the hospital in Grenoble where the 45-year-old race ace is being treated have still not revealed any date when they may try to bring him out of the coma.

And authoritative German news magazine Focus reported today: “Fears grow for Schumi - still no date for an awakening.”

Schumacher is still classed as critically ill following the December 29 accident when he smashed his skull against a rock as he skied off-piste.

Although doctors, Schumacher’s family and management have imposed a total news blackout, medical experts have said the prognosis for a recovery so long after being on life-support machines does not bode well.

Schumacher was airlifted to hospital immediately after the accident and it was feared he would not last the night.

The medical intention of an induced coma is to decrease the brain’s need for oxygen to ease its workload and therefore give it time to recover.

But the longer the coma is induced the bleaker the chances become. Schumacher is now entering a fourth week.

Officially his condition remains “stable, but critical.”

Throughout last week, neurological experts at international medical conferences across Europe have speculated on his chances of recovery.

Their expertise over the length of the coma, coupled with the lack of information about his condition, led them to believe he remains desperately ill.

One report on an Austrian website said neuro specialists attending a conference in the German city of Hanover had made his condition a “central theme” of their discussions, with surgeons arguing that to go beyond eight days in an artificial coma was highly extraordinary.

Each day, the conference heard, presented other health risks.

It was the fear of a brain haemorrhage, if he is awoken, which has made his medical team keep him under.

Professor Andreas Schwartz, chief physician of the neurological clinic at the KRH Klinikum in Nordstadt, Vienna, said even if he wakes up, his memory could be “wiped out.”

Some experts went even further, speculating he might be in a permanent vegetative state for the rest of his life.

His wife Corinna, 44, and children Gina Marie, 16, and son Mick, 14, remain at his bedside hoping for the miracle that the rest of the world hopes for with them.
