Answer

See the list below:

  • Prognosis of aneurysmal SAH has been associated with the following:

    • Age

    • Neurological status on admission

    • Aneurysm location

    • Number of days after SAH of admission (ie, delay from SAH to hospital admission)

    • Presence of hypertension and other medical illnesses

    • Degree of vasospasm

    • Degree of SAH

    • Extent of intraparenchymal or intraventricular hemorrhage

  • Outcome assessments following aneurysmal SAH may not be properly evaluated with the use of a single scale or measure. Cognitive dysfunction and subjective experience of recovery should also be considered.
