After hospital discharge, patients and their families must manage many issues: the need for supervision of the patient; the loss of the patient's ability to drive, live alone, manage finances, or return to work; and the risk of recurrent ASAH.
Van Gijn and colleagues (1985) compared the clinical presentation and outcome in 92 patients with ASAH to that in 28 patients with angiographically negative NASAH.
Other pertinent information includes patient history of recent illicit drug use, hypertension, polycystic kidney disease, previous ASAH or aneurysms, use of anticoagulants, or tobacco use, which can increase the risk of aneurysm formation (Juvela, Hillbom, Numminen, & Koskinen, 1993; Schievink, Torres, Piepgras, & Wiebers, 1992).
