The Trigger of Comas: Derry Bresee’s Near-Death Experience

By Kevin Williams

A coma is a deep state of unconsciousness during which an individual is not able to react to their environment. Someone in a coma cannot respond to any form of stimulation whatsoever. Coma can be caused by an underlying illness, or it can result from head trauma. A comatose person is still very much alive, but he or she is not simply asleep. The brain wave activity in a comatose person is very different from that of a sleeping person; you can wake up a sleeping person, you can’t wake a person in a coma. There are reports of people waking from a coma and recounting a classic near-death experience. Some reports involve the comatose patient being able to visualize and hear what is happening while in the comatose state. This web page includes two examples of NDEs occurring while the experiencer is in a coma. One is from a woman named Derry Bresee whose photo appears one the left. The other NDE comes from an article in prestigious medical journal The Lancet concerning the Dutch NDE study in 2001.
