Hello, Fatma Wulandari, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Brain hemorrhage can be caused by many causes, for example blood pressure that is too high, trauma / head injury, rupture of aneurysm, malformations / deformities of the blood vessels of the brain, blood clotting disorders, etc. Bleeding in the brain can cause a decrease in consciousness to coma, depending on which part is affected and the volume of bleeding.
Handling carried out by a team of doctors in patients with cerebral hemorrhage who certainly ensure that the vital signs are good, from the airway (airway), breathing effort (breathing), and blood circulation. This was done by checking and installing the necessary assistive devices, such as breathing aids, oxygen, infusions, urinary tubes, etc. In coma patients due to cerebral hemorrhage treatment is usually required in the ICU to be monitored closely. Medicines will be infused according to indications and needs (for example anti-seizure, anti-swelling, etc.). In addition, several conditions can allow the bleeding to be removed from the brain (surgery), depending on the patient's general condition, the cause of bleeding, the presence of comorbidities, and the size and location of the bleeding.
Signs of increasing consciousness in a coma patient gradually depend on the condition of each patient. Can start from the appearance of eye opening reflexes, reflexes of the feet or hands movements, speech reflexes, and so on. A person is said to be well aware if he can respond to stimuli from his environment appropriately and has a good orientation to the environment, time, and himself (for example: know your identity, know where you are, know what year you are now).
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
