2012 AHA/ASA Guidelines for the Management of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage[1]

Natural History and Outcome of aSAH: Recommendations

Class I
"1.The initial clinical severity of aSAH should be determined rapidly by use of simple validated scales (eg, Hunt and Hess, World Federation of Neurological Surgeons), because it is the most useful indicator of outcome after aSAH (Level of Evidence: B)"
"2. The risk of early aneurysm rebleeding is high, and rebleeding is associated with very poor outcomes. Therefore, urgent evaluation and treatment of pa- tients with suspected aSAH is recommended (Level of Evidence: B)"
Class IIa
"1. After discharge, it is reasonable to refer patients with aSAH for a comprehensive evaluation, including cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial assessments (Level of Evidence: B)"
