Long-term functional prognosis of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage treated with rehabilitation combined with hyperbaric oxygen: Case-series study

The long-term prognosis of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) has received increasing attention in recent years. Hyperbaric oxygen and rehabilitation are already used in clinical treatment of patients with aSAH, but it is unclear whether it can improve the long-term prognosis of patients postoperation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term prognosis and prognostic factors associated with combined rehabilitation and hyperbaric oxygen therapy for patients with aSAH. Information were retrospectively collected from patients with aSAH treated from October 2014 to July 2017, including demographics, history of hypertension, Hunt–Hess Grade at the time of onset, location of aneurysm, surgical treatment, status of delayed cerebral ischemia and tracheotomy, level of consciousness impairment (Glasgow Coma scale [GCS], neurologic function damage (National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale [NIHSS]), status of hydrocephalus, time of initial hyperbaric oxygen and rehabilitation therapy, as well as duration and frequency of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and so on. Long-term functional prognosis was measured by modified Rankin scale (mRS), and mRS ≤3 was defined as good prognosis. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression were used to analyze predictors associated with poor prognosis. A total of 44 patients with aSAH were enrolled, and 25 patients (56.8%) had a good functional prognosis 6 months after disease onset. Univariate analysis show...

ConclusionsThe e-ASPECTS software generates robust values for e-ASPECTS and acute infarct volumes when using ST ≤ 4 mm with ST = 1 mm yielding the best performance for predicting baseline stroke severity and clinical outcome after 90 days.Key Points•Clinical utility of automatically derived ASPECTS from computed tomography scans was shown in patients with acute ischemic stroke and treatment with mechanical thrombectomy.•Thin slices (=  1 mm) had the highest clinical utility in comparison with thicker slices (2–10 mm) by having the strongest correlation...

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE may seem harmless but the condition can be a precursor to heart disease so it is important to keep it in check. Nuts have been shown to have a moderating effect on blood pressure and one nut comes out on top.

Purpose of Review:: The purpose of this article is to present the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and management of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). SAH is a neurologic emergency that carries high morbidity and mortality. Patients with SAH are at risk for several significant neurologic complications, including hydrocephalus, cerebral edema, delayed cerebral ischemia, rebleeding, seizures, and neuroendocrine abnormalities that lead to impaired body regulation of sodium, water, and glucose. Recent Findings:: The incidence of SAH has remained stable, but mortality of hospitalized patients has significantly de...
