Monitor vitals continuosly Prevent secondary brain injury due to ischemia, hypo/hyperglycemia Maintenance of HD stability If on anti coagulation.. Ffp Urgent neurosurgery consult and plan for external ventricular drain sir

Very poor prognosis in view of brain stem hematoma Insert EVD... Approximate height of fall?? As pattern of bleed doesn't look like traumatic... If patient improves needs to rule out AVM..

It's a case of intraventricular bleed.

@well i can't interpret ct. Scan.is he mobile all his four limbs working , is he conscious. I that case wait and watch. Otherwise tell signs and symptoms.

Sir, please read the case stem, it already says GCS to be 3/15 on arrival. That's the least possible score.
