ECG Changes in Intracranial Hemorrhage

All About Cardiovascular System and Disorders

ECG Changes in Intracranial Hemorrhage ECG changes are fairly common in intracranial hemorrhage. Giant T inversions with QT interval prolongation may be seen in intracranial hemorrhage even without associated myocardial damage [1]. But the number of persons with lobar hemorrhage in that study was only 17%. Am Heart J.

Abstract TP167: Hemorrhage Severity Associates With Hospital Acquired Delirium During Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Stroke Journal

Introduction:Delirium associates with poor outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), yet its incidence and contributing factors are poorly characterized. The median hemorrhage volume was 8.0 [1.6-24.7] 1.10]), top-quartile hemorrhage volume (2.89 [1.08-7.75]), female) with an ethno-racial distribution of 57.6% Hispanic, 8.5%
