Smoking, high blood pressure and cholesterol can be fatal for hemorrhage survivors
Date:1/14/2013

of SAH survivors to the general population that did not smoke and had low blood pressure and low cholesterol levels, the risk of mortality showed an increase of 31 persons per thousand person-years", Korja says.

"In other words, if 20 out of 100 non-smokers with low blood pressure and cholesterol would die within the next 10 years, the figure for SAH survivors would be 51."

By intervening on risk factors, secondary prevention of cerebrovascular events may prevent early deaths of SAH survivors

The researchers state that considerably more attention should be paid to risk factors in the life of SAH survivors.

"Lifestyle and risk factors should be discussed with the patient, as they are nearly as important as the treatment of the acute phase of the illness," Korja points out.

Finnish researchers already showed in a previous study, based on the most extensive twin data in the world, that the primary reasons behind SAH are related to the patient's way of life, not individual genes that may predispose people to the illness.

"Changes in the way of life may reduce both the occurrence of SAH as well as the mortality of patients who have recovered from it," Kaprio says emphatically.
