[Immediate treatment of factors leading to death or sever cerebral damage in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage].

Abstract

Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is a medical emergency. Extracerebral factors may cause avoidable deaths, secondary cerebral damage and ultraearly rebleeding. Severe hypertension, hypotension, arrhythmias and pulmonary edema frequently occur; rapid referral with adequate treatment and monitoring (clinical, ABP, SO2, ECG) to neurosurgical centers is warranted. Practice guidelines should be addressed to obtain quality and continuity of management in the early diagnostic phase; intensive global medical approach should be ensured by neuranesthesists and intensivists to achieve optimal cerebral conditions before surgical or endovascular treatment.
