Beagle Posted July 12, 2021 Share Posted July 12, 2021 So my 72 year old dad had his NASAH June 19th while working in the yard. He has no prior medical history and had never been hospitalized. Angiogram didn’t show aneurysm. Was talking and standing 3 days after with PT/OT. Developed pneumonia on day 4, went on the vent and just yesterday weaned to trach collar. Has a peg tube. The pneumonia was a wild ride with fluid overload, hypernatremia, increased renal values- this has resolved now. He was on fentanyl/propofol/precedex on and off through this period. He’s been completely off sedation for 3 days. Moves to pain only, will open his eyes when he’s repositioned on bed. Repeat CTA shows no secondary ischemic stroke, there is a subdural hygroma. Docs unsure why he is slow to wake. EEG showed possible seizure activity but not confirmed. He had been on keppra prophylactically and they increased this dose. Now has 2 stage 2 pressure ulcers on sacrum and perineal area. Any other slow to wake experiences? Many thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
