Bleed On The Brain After A Fall
Yes: Sub-acute bleeding by definition is bleeding that occurs 3 -21 days after the injury or fall. I do not know the frequency of these types of bleeds but they do occur. Thus, after any head injury, even if rhe acute ct or MRI scan is negative, the patient needs to be watched for a few weeks afterward by family and friends and follow up with their primary doctor for rechecks. ...Read more
Multiple ways: During the fall, if the brain is thrust against the boney skull, it can be injured producing a small hemorrhage. A second mechanism, the bridging veins between the dura and the brain are torn producing a subdural hematoma. With lateral skull fracture, the middle meningeal artery can be torn producing an epidural hematoma. With violent falls, traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages due to arterial tears. ...Read more

It pushes on brain: A subdural hematoma, as a result of a head injury, is a collection of blood between the covering of the brain and the surface of the brain. The bleeding after an injury fills the brain area very rapidly, compressing the brain with the pressure from the enlarging glob of blood (the hematoma). Our brains do not tolerate compression, which stops some of the normal brain functions, and then we die. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dr say 5-10% chance of brain bleed from blood thinner meds is high risk? Mom has blood clots from fall in brain and DVT 1 dr says meds, 1, 1 not sure
Filter: It does appear that anticoagulant therapy would be risky in this situation. An alternative is to insert an IVC filter to prevent the blood clot from traveling from the leg to the lungs. Of course the attending physicians ,who know all the findings, are best qualified to give advice in this case. ...Read more
When I give birth im worried that I'm gonna push to much and give my self a bleed on the brain from the straining. Is this unlikely to happen?
Unlikely to happen: If on the news there are weekly reports of women dying from exploding blood vessels during childbirth, it's time to worry. Until then, dying is childbirth in a developed country is very unlikely... and is just one of the risks of living on planet Earth. As they say, "Don't sweat the small stuff." One may feel safer by delivering in a hospital that has an intensive care nursery for babies. ...Read more
