Sony Group Corp announced on Tuesday that Nobuyuki Idei, the company’s previous CEO, died on June 2 at the age of 84 due to liver failure. Idei joined Sony in 1995 as president, then as Chief Executive in 1998. He was chairman and CEO from 2000 until 2005.
Idei had been recruited by predecessor Norio Ohga for his charisma and forthright demeanour, but his drive into content created a schism between Japan-based engineers and overseas movie and music producers.
Mr. Idei made a significant contribution to Sony’s expansion as a global firm during his seven years as CEO, beginning in 1998.
Tokyo-based Sony is one of Japan’s most prestigious brands, having invented the Walkman portable music player. However, it had humble beginnings in the 1940s, when the country was still recovering from World War II’s devastation.
According to Sony, Idei was living with his wife and daughter. A private funeral service for immediate relatives was held, and a company memorial celebration in his honour is being planned for a later date, according to the statement.
What are the Symptoms of Liver Failure?
The following are some of the signs and symptoms of liver failure:
- Yellowing of Eyeballs and Skin (Jaundice)
- Musty or Sweet Odor Breath

What are the Causes of Liver Failure?
Liver failure occurs when the liver cells are severely damaged and no longer function. The following are some of the possible causes:
- Acetaminophen Overdose
The most prevalent cause of abrupt liver failure in the United States is taking too much acetaminophen (Tylenol). Acetaminophen is also known as paracetamol outside of the United States. Liver failure can result from a single big dose of acetaminophen or from taking higher-than-recommended amounts on a daily basis for several days.
If you or someone you know has taken an excessive amount of acetaminophen, seek medical help right away. It is possible that treatment will keep your liver from failing. Do not wait for symptoms of liver failure to appear.
- Prescribed Medications
Antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines are among the medications that might induce liver failure.
The toxic wild fungus Amanita phalloides, which is occasionally confused for one that is safe to eat, contain toxins that can induce abrupt liver failure. Another toxin that can cause abrupt liver failure is carbon tetrachloride. It is an industrial chemical that is used in refrigerants and wax, varnish, and other materials’ solvents.
The failure of your liver might be caused by cancer that starts in or spreads to your liver.
- Autoimmune Disease
Autoimmune hepatitis, a disorder in which your immune system destroys liver cells, producing inflammation and injury, can lead to liver failure.
How to Prevent Liver Failure?
- Follow instructions while consuming any medicine.
- Consult with your doctor about all your problems and related medicines.
- Do not drink alcohol in excess.
- Do not share needles and while intercourse use protection.
- Avoid contact with other persons’ body fluids and blood.
- It is not always easy to distinguish the difference between a toxic and a safe-to-eat mushroom. Always use after full satisfaction.
- Cover your skin with gloves, long sleeves, a hat, and a mask when utilising pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
