PhD Project:

Effect of early rehabilitation in patients with acute aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage

The study's main objective will be to assess which effect early initiated rehabilitation has on the frequency of complications and the level of physical and cognitive functioning after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). To this end the following aspects will be investigated:

·   The frequency of complications (with special emphasis on pulmonary complications, thrombo-embolic events, cerebral vasospasm, unintended discontinuation of drains and lines)

·   Length of stay in hospitals and socio-economic impact

·   Physical and cognitive function in the early and chronic phase after SAH

·   Health-related quality of life and participation in society in the chronic phase
