Subarachnoid hemorrhages (SAHs) are a serious medical emergency, as 30% to 50% of all SAHs can result in death. Personal accounts and case studies are an important aspect of evidence-based practice. This first article of two presents a review of AB's (patient) condition immediately following an SAH in the intensive care and immediately post discharge, that is, Days 1 through 22. An SAH shares many similarities with other neurological traumas such as a cerebral vascular accident, meningitis, and/or traumatic brain injury. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in medical settings have worked with patients and families with these types of disorders. Therefore, SLPs should be well equipped to assist with SAH issues from their existing knowledge and experiences.
