Study group discussion: Locked in syndrome and total locked in syndrome

What's locked in syndrome and total locked in syndrome?

The patient is conscious, well oriented to time, place and person but is unable to carry out any voluntary movement along with loss of reflexes. Everyone else thinks the patient to be in a comatose / coma state.

Some retained cranial nerve reflexes with eye movements to communicate with no limb movement.

Yes! But in total locked in syndrome, there's no eye movement.

In locked in syndrome, I think patient communicates through blinking of eyes.

Yes. But in total locked in syndrome, they cannot.
