End-of-life Decisions in Stroke
Outcomes in Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH)
Frequent early decisions to limit life-sustaining treatments in intracerebral hemorrhage have the potential to result in a “self fulfilling prophecy”, where physician predictions of poor outcome come true as a result of treatment limitations rather than the natural history of the disease. Dr. Morgenstern and Dr. Zahuranec have collaborated with investigators at other institutions to perform a prospective study to determine the true outcomes for ICH patients who do not have early treatment limitations.
