Yes: Bedside head ultrasound is much better for that purpose.
Dr. Michael Korona
Interventional Radiology 33 years experience
Cat scan: Non contrast cat scan of the head can show the bleed. If not seen and symptoms are suspicious, may also need the lumbar puncture to be sure.

See below: Don't use just your back. Bend at the knee and hips, when you are helping the person stand. That will allow you to take the strain off of your back.

Be aware : Be aware of proper body mechanics by using your legs as your power source and keeping the load close to your body while avoiding any type of twisting or rotation as you lift. Know your limits especially with large, bulky objects or heavy ones.

A 36-year-old female asked:

What causes a hemmorage in the eye following a retnial detatchment surgery.?

Vascular leaks: The retina is very thin, very fragile but richly endowed with blood vessels and it sits on another carpet of blood vessels. Re-attachment surgery has to restructure a detached retina in the presence of all of this vascular richness and fragility and sometimes smaller vessels can leak or even vessels at the site of entry into the eye. This will clear usually with time.

Is it ok to make a 2 month old baby sit upright. Won't it hurt her back bone?

Not natural: Sitting is not natural for a 2 mo old. Laying on a surface semi-upright is. If you sit him supporting him (like on your lap while holding him), then it is ok. I would not advise sitting him by himself on a high chair for example.
