Stroke
  • The average age is lower than for ischemic stroke. Less common than ischemic strokes, hemorrhagic strokes make up about 12 percent of all strokes.[strokecenter.org]
  • In order to treat cerebral ischemia, doctors may prescribe medications for ischemic stroke. Alteplase is an medication used to acute ischemic stroke.[columbianeurosurgery.org]
  • Ischemic stroke, if recognized early can be treated with medicines given intravenously by special clot busters given directly into the vessels in the brain. This specialized care of ischemic stroke is directed by a stroke neurologist.[ucdmc.ucdavis.edu]

Confusion
  • Symptoms of brain compression, which can show up immediately following a head injury or weeks later, include: headaches vomiting drowsiness dizziness confusion, progressive loss of consciousness Not treating compression of the brain can lead to the destruction[kidshealth.org]

  • Even more confusing is the fact that you can have both at the same time. A contusion does not mean you have a concussion, but some contusions are due to head trauma so severe that the damage affects a larger portion of your brain.[spinalcord.com]
  • These are the most common things which may happen if someone has had a head injury: Concussion is a brief period of unresponsiveness – someone with concussion may be confused, but only for a short time, followed by complete recovery.[sja.org.uk]
  • Depending on the size of the hematoma and where it presses on the brain, any of the following symptoms may occur: Confused or slurred speech Problems with balance or walking Headache Lack of energy or confusion Seizures or loss of consciousness Nausea[medlineplus.gov]
Seizure
  • Seizures often occur at the time the hematoma forms, or up to months or years after treatment. But medicines can help control the seizures.[medlineplus.gov]
  • seizures will be recurrent.[dartmouth.edu]
  • Seizures are divided into two major categories: generalized seizures (a result of abnormal activity in most or all of the brain) and partial seizures (originating in a specific area of the brain).[britannica.com]
  • Seizures are another commonly encountered symptom of brain metastases.[aafp.org]
  • Symptoms include headaches and seizures. Cavernous malformation is frequently inherited. Treatment for cavernous malformation is symptomatic and supportive.[ucdmc.ucdavis.edu]

  • Confusing and ambiguous terms such as "stupor", "lethargy", and "coma" should be avoided unless defined. Decreasing levels of consciousness often follow a logical progression and can be documented in a stepwise pattern (Table 29-1 ).[dartmouth.edu]

Workup

  • It is important to note that while a sellar mass may present with bitemporal hemianopia, the combination of findings described above describing a junctional scotoma also localizes to the sellar area, and additional workup is indicated.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu]

  • I agree if the etiology of a bleed is not clear, querying is necessary. You are correct - it is cool to see a response to a question you posed. I always figure there must be a lot of other people out there asking the same question![forums.acdis.org]
