Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is an emergent illness that has a disproportionately high risk of mortality and permanent severe disability as compared to ischemic stroke. Systematic attention to supportive neurocritical care, including monitoring for rebleeding and other acute and delayed neurological and medical complications of ICH, and rapid reversal of coagulopathy in coagulopathy- related ICH, may significantly decrease mortality and morbidity risk.
