Initial patient management

Management of aSAH is critical during the first few hours. If aSAH is suspected the patient should be transferred to a regional neurological center if possible. Initial patient management centers on stabilizing the patient while confirming the presence, location, and size of the aneurysm, as well as the extent of the hemorrhage. This information is used to determine the optimal treatment to repair the ruptured vessel.
