Help Dr's -What exactly is supposed to happen immediately after one has a hemorrhagic stroke? My brother recently had one in the brain stem and paramedics did not take his blood pressure when they arrived, did not start any medical treatment only transferred him to hospital. Arrival at hospital he was placed on breathing tube but no feeding tube, so he literally for 5 days only received large amts of medication and no nutrition. We were told that the brain stem hemorrhagic stroke was massive and there was nothing they could do. The only thing the dr did was put in a drain to help bring down swelling of the encephalagic fluids on top of brain but they did nothing to try to stop or control the bleeding. Pls let me know what is proper protocol.
