1.        Your patient is a 53-year-old woman with aSAH. According to the new guidelines by Connolly and colleagues from the AHA Stroke Council and other professional societies, which of the following statements about new class I recommendations for management of aSAH is correct?

Answer: Immediate cerebrovascular imaging should be performed after any aneurysm repair
Except for aneurysms previously diagnosed by noninvasive angiography, DSA with 3D rotational angiography is indicated to detect aneurysm in patients with aSAH. This modality is also indicated for planning treatment to determine whether an aneurysm is amenable to coiling or to expedite microsurgery. Early identification and targeted treatment of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and deep venous thrombosis are recommended, but further research is needed to identify the optimal screening strategy.

2.        According to the new guidelines by Connolly and colleagues from the AHA Stroke Council and other professional societies, which of the following statements about new class II recommendations for management of aSAH is correct?

Answer: In the acute phase of aSAH, it is reasonable to aggressively control fever to a goal of normothermia
It is reasonable to perform a complete assessment, including cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial evaluation, after discharge. Transcranial Doppler is a reasonable test to monitor for the development of arterial vasospasm, and perfusion imaging with computed tomography or magnetic resonance can help detect regions of potential brain ischemia. It is reasonable to aim for a systolic blood pressure of less than 160 mm Hg, although the intensity of blood pressure control needed to lower the risk of rebleeding has not been determined. (Adult hearing loss) (HA/ HIV) Turning Sign-- May Help Identify Alzheimer's.
