Intracranial Hemorrhage?


hi; I am pre- med student and preparing a presentation about Intracranial Hemorrhage. I need some recommendation about how should I organize it . As you understand the topic is quite hard for a pre-med student, I thought that may be someone can give me advice about making an outline. If I can make a draft, the rest would become easier for me.

I thought that it would be good if I start by explaining the anotomical structure of brain and the layer of meninges and later on the diseases which cause the hemorrhage and symptoms of having hemorrhage.

What should I add more and is the structure good ?

thank you very much...

hypertensive brain hemorrhage question?


If someone has a hypertensive brain hemorrhage and then starts to get better but dies 6 weeks later from a heart attack while still in the hospital, what caused the heart attack? could the hemorrhage put strain on the heart, causing death? Thanks
----------

The heart was probably in poor condition to begin with due to the hypertension. The stress of the brain hemorrhage would contribute to the stress on the heart and make it more likely to infarct.  (+ info)

CT scan interpreted? acute hemorrhage but not intracranial?


i have the disk of my scan and the results and i do not understand it at all.can someone who knows the medical terminology please translate?
here is what the paper says:
"there is opacification of many of the sinuses with fluid levels, especially in the frontal sinuses. in light of the patient's history of trauma this probably represents hemorrhage. there is no evidence for conspicuous fracture."

just in case you are wondering why i had this CT scan, I had gotten headbutted a week before and the fluids in my sinuses was blood. my entire face was swallon and purple/ black.
----------

Basically you had a bloody nose... your sinus (nasal) cavities were full of blood. There was no evidence of any broken bones and no mention of any brain injury or trauma. You should be fine when the swelling goes down.  (+ info)

What is the life span of a hypertensive stroke victim?

Does anyone know the life span she's expected to have?
Depending on how long the brain suffers a lack of blood flow, a stroke can sometimes cause temporary or permanent disabilities. Stroke complications differ depending what part of the brain was affected and may include:Paralysis or loss of muscle movement,Difficulty talking or swallowing,Memory loss or troubles with understanding.Pain. Some people who have a stroke may have pain, numbness, or other strange sensations in parts of their body affected by stroke.

People who have a stroke may also become withdrawn and less social. They may lose the ability to care for themselves and may need a caretaker to help them with their grooming needs and daily chores after a stroke.

As with any brain injury, the success of treating these complications will vary from person to person.Although stroke-related disabilities can be permanent, many people lead active lives after a stroke. Many are able to resume everyday life and responsibilities.

Depression often occurs in people who have had a Stroke. They mourn the loss of their previous self. They may have many fears, uncertainties and altered feelings about themselves, as well as experience losses in social activity, ponder questions about future prospects, financial security and returning to work. The person may see little purpose in living and express thoughts of death.

Is it okay to give a massage to a hypertensive person?


I have been told that when you massage a hypertensive, blood clots might go to his head and cause an aneurysm.
----------

No, this is not true. People with high blood pressure are more likely to have a stroke but not an aneurysm. Aneurysms are dilations of blood vessels which can break open. High blood pressure could increase the odds of a rupture. A massage would most likely lower blood pressure which would actually make this unlikely.

You should not massage the neck of someone with atherosclerosis (coronary heart disease). These people may have cholesterol "plaques" in their carotid arteries. Massaging the carotids can send of a piece of the plaque ("emboli") which can lodge in the brain and cause a stroke.  (+ info)

yes surely ur brother can do a treadmill provided he does it at a slow speed (if possible slowest speed) and elevation. no fast speeds as this may increase the bp quickly. and let him go in for light exercise no heavy weights.  (+ info)
