Cerebral Hemorrhage

Cerebral hemorrhage is bleeding within or around the brain. When this happens, it is difficult for oxygen to be efficiently supplied to brain tissues. The deprivation of oxygen for around 3 to 4 minutes leads to brain cell death. The symptoms include sudden severe headache, weakness and numbness of the extremities, nausea, vision or balance changes, fainting, seizures, and difficulty speaking or understanding speech. Cerebral hemorrhage is often verified through an angiogram, computed tomography angiography, cerebrospinal fluid exam, and lumbar puncture. The treatments include surgery, medication, catheter procedure, and pertinent therapies (occupational, speech, and physical).
