Erratum: August 4, 2014

On slide 32 of the Disorders of Consciousness BIM case, Dr. Lawrence Horn states “The vegetative state is considered permanent at 6 months for non-traumatic brain injury.” This statement is based on the consensus opinion of the Royal College of Physicians in the United Kingdom. However, the interval most commonly recognized in the United States is that of the American Academy of Neurology's Multi-Society Task Force on Persistent Vegetative State (PVS) which considers vegetative state to be permanent at 3 months for non-traumatic brain injury.
