Example text

This patient’s level of arousal improves a few minutes after placing the E D (opening pressure 35 mm Hg). He is now able to localize to painful stimulations. Does the prognosis change with improved neuroexamination after E D placement? changing neurologic Status After E D Placement Placement of an EVD frequently results in a significant improvement in neurologic status. Comatose patients may start to localize to painful stimulation and may even open their eyes. Although this is not always seen, when it happens, it may possibly indicate a favorable outlook (eg, a patient, who presents with HH grade V after aneurysmal SAH, wakes up after EVD placement and begins to follow verbal commands: if such patient remains awake and continues to follow commands throughout the course of his/her illness, then the patient is behaving like a low-grade HH [ie, grades I to III], not like a grade V who presents and remains in coma).

J Neurosurg. 8 This grading system is not flawless as it can be challenging sometimes to differentiate between each category. For example, consider a patient with SAH with mild headache and nuchal rigidity versus another patient with moderate headache and nuchal rigidity (which means grades I and II, respectively, according to the original HH grading system). The only differentiating variable here would be the intensity of the headache, and that can be problematic as the intensity of headache is subjective and patients often cannot differentiate mild from moderate headache (most people would say “very bad” headache and cannot provide further details than that).
