Variable.: It depends on the size of the hemorrhage. Also , survival isn't the only issue, but how functional the person is after resuscitation.

That's tricky...: Many factors at play: pt age, bleed location (subdural, subarachnoid, intracerebral) date, size, speed & GCS (Glascow Coma Sore). So individualized there aren't reliable numbers. Elderly don't fare as well & bleeds lower in the brain (pons) are more dangerous. If docs can't surgically control ICP (intracranial pressure) or if patient is vent-dependent it's serious. But pts beat the odds every day!
