Effects of EDH

my sister fell down from stairs and she was fine. after some two hours she started vomiting and was bit little drowsy, we went to our physician and he advised CAT scan of brain. it said EDH and my sister became more and more drowsy. we were asked to go to neuro center where they said its life threatening and needs an emergency surgery. they did and after 2 days my sister was discharged. is EDH so dangerous

it is the injury that is dangerous a simple fall also can cause this. you need to be very careful about this as it will bleed inside it is not visible also. only CT scan of brain can find it so you need to get the CT scan of brain as soon as possible and consult neurosurgeon immediately

yes it is very dangerous in fact peoeple die in no time before they are shifted to hospital. many times there are no neurosurgeons to operate and they will die. it is some vessel break and bleeding in the brain following injury to head

Yes, it is because it can interfere with the blood supply to the vital parts of the brain and can result in Stroke.

My BP was around 150/100 and I was started on lisinopril at 20 mg. After 3 weeks it is typically around 130/88. However every once in a while (twice) it has spiked back up to 150/95. Both times this occurred it was after a day when I had diarrhea. Two questions - first could the lisinopril be purged following diarrhea such that it takes a day or two to get back to the normal effects of the drug and second. While on Lisonopril is it typical to occasionally have your BP break through the effects of the drug
