Respected lybrate-user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com Sorry to her about your mother.* Ventilator will support the life system till unlimited time period. Consult with doctor, if she is brain dead and she is in coma, there are no chances of her reversal then discuss with your relatives for stopping the ventilatory support which is not curative. If doctors are telling and giving perfect assurance that she will be out of danger within some days, then continue ventilator otherwise there is no point in it.* Be brave and take the lead to decide in this critical stage for your family. Welcome for any further guidance. Thanks dear regards.
