Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I strongly suggest that you discuss this with the patient's cardiologist, as one will not be able to live with a torn aorta. The aorta is the main artery that supplies the body with the blood and I therefore think that you have been given the wrong explanation or reason why she is unable to do anything.
