what patient needs is urgent ventriculostomy and continuous evd..with intensive care, aed, ppp blockers, nsaid, antibiotic coverage, oxygen support, prevention of airway blockage and chest complication, bedsore and other complications...eventually patient can survive..mannitol, ladi, diuretics, steroids etc don't help but will harm and are contraindicated...angio is not needed at this stage as this is hypertensive blwed and not aneurysmal.. shifting critical patients for unnecessary investigations is actually harmful... such cases require very expert neurosurgical and critical care consultants to deliver the desired outcome...we see most patients worsening due to inexpert managment by non neuro specialities and then they are referred after iatrogenic worsening whereby the overall outcome is far worse and a much added expense to the patient and family...my message to medica fraternity... DONT TREAT SUCH CASES ARBITRARILY, INVOLVE A NEUROSURGEON FROM DAY 1 AS TEAM LEADER
