The effect of diet on the health of hospital patients with SAH


The use of the right kind of diet in all diseases for a long time is essential in improving the health of patients.

To date, the efficacy of high protein diet was confirmed in the operations of various organs in addition to the state after subarachnoid hemorrhage.

So far, no testing undertaken to evaluate the effect of a high protein diet on the health of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage, as awareness about the course and consequences of the disease was small. Well, subarachnoid hemorrhage is a specific type of hemorrhagic stroke. It is a
about 10 – 12% of all intracranial vascular events. The prevalence rate is 6 – 7 persons / 100000 for a period of one year.

Subarachnoid hemorrhage affects mostly middle-aged patients (50 y. Old) – often women. This disease for 2 – 8% of the population, despite the progress diagnostics and operational methods and embolization, collects its toll.
As reported statistics cerebral artery aneurysms and arteriovenous distortion significantly increase the risk of bleeding because weaken the vascular wall, which in these places can easily break. The risk of bleeding is increased in patients with hypertension, atherosclerosis and diseases leading to blood coagulation disorders, eg. Leukemia.
Patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage undergo surgical treatment are at high risk when it comes to protein deficiency. Affect this neurological deficits hinder eating, increased demand due to illness and medical procedures used. In addition, surgery is associated with significant stress and damage to body tissues. Therefore, the current time is the question of whether the patient undergo surgery, get a meal right dose of nutrients. This unresolved issue has inspired to carry out studies to confirm or exclude the effectiveness of that high protein diet for patients affected by how severe the consequences of disease.

At the turn of 2010 and 2011 at the Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital in Bialystok, an analysis of the effects of diet on the results of the hospital rich protein patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage and brain tumors. The study group consisted of 40 patients in the squad, which consisted of 30 patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. All patients were applied rich protein hospital diet.

After a thorough analysis of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage was found that 60% of them located in the age group between 45 and 55 years of age, and 10% in the range of 28 – 30. subarachnoid haemorrhage in 70% relate to women, and patients lying on the ward disease in 60% come from small towns. Neurosurgery clinic patients lived an average of 8 days. Patients with suspected SAH frequently complained about the following symptoms: malaise, weakness, headache, nausea, vomiting. The patients were awake, without paralysis, kept in touch verbal. After measuring the pressure found increased its value. After several hours, the patients condition deteriorated. Grew consciousness. Reported symptoms and the deteriorating state of the patients were the basis for this to make a detailed diagnosis of subarachnoid hematomas confirming the presence in the body. It was decided to perform testing for morphology and glucose, water – electrolyte and protein. The study also deepened cerebral angiography and computed tomography. After the CT scan and angiography confirmed the presence of SAH and qualified patients for embolization.

The diet of hospital patients suffering from this condition should be paid more attention to the properly composed diet accelerates convalescence. Discussed diet contains relatively a small amount of calories and protein. These two aspects are discussed the most important, because not only accelerate patient recovery, but also influence the improvement of well-being.

The best solution, however, the treatment of subarachnoid hemorrhage is to invest in prevention. Should pay attention to the ways to prevent illness for stroke by: increased physical activity, healthy lifestyle and appropriate diet.

Healthy lifestyle would reduce the number of incidents occurring disorders. Such a situation would translate into a reduction in funding for operations in progress, because every human being, regardless of whether it fulfills the role of the doctor or the patient should know say that prevention is better than cure.
The conclusion is the fact that the hospital diet did not improve the health of patients, because the average amount of energy, protein, fat and carbohydrates differ from the norm. In addition, the diet should be modified repeated a second breakfast because of the monotony. All of this leads to the main conclusion, which is that the good cooperation of doctors and nutritionists, to verify the error in the analyzed diet will provide therapeutic success and faster recovery of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage.
