Ultra-early intensive blood pressure treatment in intracerebral hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Early intensive blood pressure (BP) treatment with nicardipine is associated with reduced hematoma growth and improved functional outcome in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).

Why this matters

    Clinical benefits of intensive blood pressure reduction are time-dependent, and ultra-early recognition and intervention with antihypertensive treatment nicardipine is most beneficial.
