Lower mean hemoglobin (HGB) levels are associated with unfavorable outcome after spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Currently, there is no cutoff level for mean HGB levels associated with unfavorable outcome. This study was conducted to evaluate a threshold for mean HGB concentrations after SAH, and to observe the relation to outcome. The medical records of 702 patients with spontaneous SAH were reviewed. Predictors of outcome were proved by univariate analysis. Predictors with p<0.1… CONTINUE READING
