Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Defined: Analyzing Bret Michaels’ Survival

April 24, 2010 by · 2 Comments 


As the news broke about the recent hospitalization of the Poison Frontman Bret Michaels due to subarachnoid hemorrhage, a lot has been searching about this condition’s description and how high the chance Michaels have for survival.

As you search for its meaning in various definition sites, common description of the condition implies the presence of blood within the subarachnoid space from some pathologic process. The common medical use of the term SAH refers to the nontraumatic types of hemorrhages, usually from rupture of a berry aneurysm orarteriovenous malformation (AVM). The scope of this article is limited to these nontraumatic hemorrhages.

Prognosis of this condition or chance of survival is relatively poor depending on the care given and the capability of health care facility. As to the case of Michaels, his undisclosed health care facility is capable but still it’s not guarantee. In cases he would survive, there is a possibility that he won’t be living life as normal as before basically because according to statistics, more than one third of survivors have major neurologic deficits. Furthermore, an estimated 10-15% of patients die before reaching the hospital. Mortality rate reaches as high as 40% within the first week. About half die in the first 6 months.

We need to be praying for him, his family, and his children and also for the medical staff that are currently working hard to preserve his life.

    I suffered two SAHs nearly 4 years ago, and I was lucky to have a fantastic surgeon and recovered with no ill effects. I am sure that he will survive, it is not always a death sentence – and if he is communicating, that’s an excellent sign. Best of luck, Bret!!!!
