OVERVIEW OF CEREBRAL ANEURYSM

Read and learn about Cerebral Aneurysm in A Case Study(Subarachnoid Hemorrhage).
Hi guys,
Hope you had a good week. This week and the next will address Aneurysms both Cerebral and Abdominal ( Aortic) . Understanding and managing the care of a patient with a Cerebral Aneurysm can have great benefits if done correctly. The need for rest to avoid secondary injury to the brain cannot be over emphasized.
Neurological deficits may occur in patients with brain events, when excessive amounts of pain medication and very little rest is combined. Always follow your MD orders when medicating patients and be aware of side effects of narcotics such as lethargy and respiratory depression.
Be sure to assess and document your patient's neurological status prior to giving pain meds. This will make for a good baseline.
