Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All cause mortality and neurological outcome [ Time Frame: 3 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of stay (ICU, hospital); complications; effect of treatment modalities on mean ICP, CPP, ICP mean wave amplitude. [ Time Frame: Hospital stay ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: November 2005
Study Completion Date: June 2009
Primary Completion Date: February 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: ICP mean wave amplitude
    Appropriate measures when ICP mean wave amplitude is to high, e.g. CSF drainage
Detailed Description:
In this study SAH-patients are randomized to treatment based on international standard care (ICP/CPP guided therapy) or intracranial compliance (ICP mean wave amplitude) guided therapy in addition to ICP/CPP guided therapy. Main outcome variables are survival and neurological outcome after 3 and 12 months.
