Doctors treating injured Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher are reducing his sedation to prepare to bring him out of a coma, his manager says.
His manager Sabine Kehm said in a statement yesterday that the step will allow the “waking up process” to start.
Ms Kehm was approached by the media for comment on Schumacher’s condition on Wednesday – exactly a month after his crash. She said then that his condition of the 45 year old remained “stable”.
In her statement on Thursday, she said it had been agreed to communicate details of his sedation “only once this process was consolidated”.
Doctors have kept him asleep to help reduce the swelling. Schumacher suffered a severe head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps on 29 December.
