About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Liver failure usually refers to the likely outcome of Liver failure. The prognosis of Liver failure may include the duration of Liver failure, chances of complications of Liver failure, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Liver failure, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Liver failure. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
