Hi, my grandfather is 84 years old and he is in hospital for several weeks already. He gets there after he had a stroke. Since we transferred him to the hospital he stayed unconscious. My mother visited him yesterday and his doctor told her that situation is not promising and that he developed irregular breathing called Cheyne-Stokes breathing. I would like to know what kind of breathing is it.

Hi, Cheyne-Stokes breathing is specific way of breathing for the patients who suffers from stroke, coma or hearth failure. It is characterized by period when patient don't breathe at all and it may last more than just few second. After that breathing is deep and strong. It looks like that because breathing center in the brain is damaged and it causes irregular breathing.
