Bleeding In The Brain


A brain hemorrhage, also known as a cerebral hemorrhage, is a type of stroke that occurs when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds. This can cause damage to the brain tissue and lead to serious complications. 


There are several types of brain hemorrhages, including:


  • Intracerebral hemorrhage: bleeding that occurs within the brain tissue
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage: bleeding that occurs between the brain and the membrane that covers it


Causes of brain hemorrhage can include:


  • High blood pressure
  • Aneurysms (weakened blood vessels in the brain)
  • Trauma or injury to the head
  • Blood disorders such as Hemophilia

Symptoms of brain hemorrhage can include:


  • Sudden and severe headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Weakness or numbness on one side of the body
  • Vision problems
  • Difficulty speaking or understanding speech


Diagnosis of brain hemorrhage is typically made by a physical examination, an evaluation of medical history, CT scan or MRI of the brain and other tests to determine the cause.


Treatment for brain hemorrhage will depend on the type of hemorrhage and the cause. Some common treatments include:

  • Surgery to repair or remove the source of the bleeding
  • Medications to control blood pressure and prevent further bleeding
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation to help with recovery and regain strength and function


It is important to note that brain hemorrhage is a medical emergency, and immediate treatment is crucial to minimize brain damage and long-term disability. If you suspect someone is experiencing a brain hemorrhage, call emergency services right away.
