Mortal injury and sleep

I am looking for information or articles about the effect of sleep when a person is in any way mortally injured. The classic reaction is to avoid sleep in order to keep alive. The victim of the injury tries to keep awake in order to not die. Does the situation imply that the victim is feeling drowsy or sleepy as a reaction to the injury and as a process of dying? What are the chemical and physical processes that occur in the body in the process of death or near death related to a mortal injury, and does not sleeping actually keep the person alive?

 I think that the energy that keep us alive just changes in another type of energy.

I am not sure what you are aiming at. Since a dead body will fail to sustain itself with all the processes that it needs, all the chemical structures in the body will eventually get to be a part of other processes in whatever surroundings there are. Thus energy is transformed. On what level or in wich way you are aiming, I am not sure. Heat leaves the body and son on and so forth.

However, this does not answer my questions. I want to know if trying to stay awake will help you to stay alive. If so, why, or why not?
