Guest Vonk Posted July 24, 2010 Share Posted July 24, 2010 Hi all First posting so first of hello. Just by way of introduction, my mum had an SAH in January of this year and passed away as a result of multiple organ failure following this. My dad has (possibly as a way of distracting himself) taken the view (following discussions with his cousin who is a doctor in France) that my mum was not treated properly. One of his main concerns is that there was a long delay between the onset of the SAH and the placing of a ventricular/cerebral drain - a delay of around 10 hours. My dad's cousin's view is that in France, these are placed ASAP after the onset of the haemorrhage and from talking to a couple of other people we know who have had SAHs, the suggestion is that these are normally placed fairly quickly. I would really appreciate it if anyone could share their experience of this. Thanks very much V Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
