What Is Brain Hamrage
Unfortunately, : This is not rare. When an aneurysm bursts, causing a subarachnoid hemorrhage, about 50% die before reaching hospital. An acute subdural hematoma may cause brain herniation, but epidural hematoma, and intracranial bleeding could likewise cause irreversible problems if grow too large and cause deterioration. Some hemorrhages move from brain to ventricle, and these too can cause havoc. ...Read more
Around 50%: Bleeding within the brain, an intracerebral hemorrhage, either from trauma or a type of stroke, results in survival of about 50% often with disability. The other big category is hemorrhage outside the brain substance-a subarachnoid hemorrhage-due to ruptured aneurysm. Similarly, 40% of these cases are fatal, with permanent neurological damage in 66% of survivors. It is a super serious condition:( ...Read more
Generally once the a: Generally once the acute phase of the stoke is stabilized in the first day or two of admission, there is a risk for subsequent bleed that does need to be monitored. If stabilized the neurologic consequences of the stroke needs to be addressed along with assuring general medical stability and appropriate control of a patients blood pressure. We then need to enter the rehab phase. ...Read more
Varies: The symptoms may vary depending on the type of bleed. The most dramatic are bleeds from aneurysms in which the classic symptom is the sudden severe "worst headache of one's life". These may be coma producing. The intracerebral hemorrhage or hemorrhagic stroke frequently presents with sudden onset of neurological deficits like weakness on one side, speech problems, or altered level of consciousness. ...Read more
Size dependent: If you are referring to how long will it take for the body to clear a brain hemorrhage, that is primarily related to the size of the hemorrhage. Smaller hemorrhages will be reabsorbed quicker than larger ones. Hemorrhages only several cubic mls in volume will be reabsorbed in a couple of weeks, whereas large 35+cubic ml hemorrhages can take months to completely reabsorb the blood products. ...Read more
The one that kills: Obvious answer....well, it is the only answer based upon your question. There is no such thing as a "worst" type of brain hemorrhage. Each and every type can have A REALLY BAD CONSEQUENCE occurring upon its owner depending on circumstances and severity of the bleed. I think the worst is probably the EPIDURAL. That one's a doozy.

No Single Number: There is no single number that can quantitate the force needed to cause traumatic brain injury (tbi), as there are simply too many factors. Such as, area of force, location of force, underlying anatomical uniqueness of individual based on age and size as well as any pre-existing medical problems such as hypo-coagulopathies. Suffice it to say that you can have tbi from a simple fall from standing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Increasing: Increase risk for brain hemorrhage can result from many conditions and life styles, such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity, smoking, & inheritance. Over time our blood vessels become stiff unable to withstand the constant intraluminal pressure and they leak or break. The older you get the more likely this is to occur. To mitigate these, eat well, don't smoke (or stop), exercise regularly see doc. ...Read more
