Urgent evaluation in an emergency setting is needed to quickly identify and treat any underlying condition. Diagnosing and treating secondary thunderclap headache When you arrive at the hospital, the medical team will want to confi...

However, we feel that by emphasizing observational studies over randomized controlled trials in their synthesis of available literature, the authors have, in this ca...
