Subarachnoid Haemorrhage (SAH)

Subarachnoid Haemorrhage (SAH)

The neuropsychology contribution to the follow up of patients who have suffered a subarachnoid haemorrhage is part of a wider programme which brings together the neurosurgeon, neuroradiologist, specialist nurse and clinical neuropsychologist in the provision of  information, guidance and intervention, determined by the specific needs of the individual patient.

 

During their inpatient stay and prior to discharge, patients usually undergo assessment by occupational therapy and review by specialist nurse. Discharge takes place following discussion by the multidisciplinary team.

Post discharge, patients become part of an integrated follow up system co-ordinated by a nurse specialist and assistant psychologist.  This involves telephone and outpatient clinical neuropsychology review if problems persist.
