A qualified nursing care is mandatory in patients after SAH. Clinical and instrumental monitoring are basilar to assure the rapid control of dangerous ICP or CPP changes and of epileptic crisis. Prophylaxis of infections is greatly minimized when coherent treatments are applied to any invasive devices, patient body, patient bed and UTI area. Many drugs can be useful to avoid ICP increases by tracheal suctioning and other sensorial stimulations. Having a trained staff, patient outcome can be improved.
