Brain Haemorrhage

Brain Haemorrhage Treatment

Caused by rupture of arteries in the brain resulting in bleeding. When enough bleeding occurs, blood occupies space and compresses surrounding brain tissue so that blood carrying oxygen is prevented from reaching the affected tissues killing brain cells.


Bleeding can occur inside the brain, between the brain and the membranes that cover it, between the layers of the brain’s covering or between the skull and the covering of the brain.
