  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    ECG changes in SAH Non-specific changes commonly occur ST & T wave changes may mimic ischaemia ( inf leads) Widened QRS Prolonged QT Peaked or deeply inverted T waves ST elevation[emed.ie] KEYWORDS: Acute aortic dissection; Aneurysm; computed tomography angiography; subarachnoid hemorrhage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Photophobia or is neither sensitive nor specific . Cranial nerve palsies (3rd, 5th or 6th) or visual field defects may be associated findings.[emed.ie]

    The authors showed that in patients with MCI, pupillary abnormalities and severe brainstem compression may be present despite normal ICP values.[doi.org] Autosomal dominant inheritance of a predisposition to thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections and intracranial saccular aneurysms.[emedicine.com] Intracranial pressure readings were evaluated and correlated with pupillary abnormalities and with midline shift and ischemic tissue volume evaluated in the CT scan.[doi.org]
