12:51, August 12 2018 A Bay of Plenty girl is in intensive care in an American hospital with brain damage. Alyssa Ledbetter, 11, was swimming with her family on July 21 when she emerged from the water complaining of a headache, neck pain, blurry vision and numbness in her legs. Alyssa was taken on a stretcher to the lifeguard station, where her condition deteriorated, her father Dave Ledbetter said in a post on a crowd-funding page. Ledbetter said his daughter then lost control of her bodily functions and seizures set in. Her blurred vision worsened, she couldn't recognise the people in the room, and she began to fall in and out of consciousness. Alyssa was taken to a nearby hospital, where she underwent surgery. Surgeons drilled through her skull to drain the fluid and relieve pressure.

A brain haemorrhage is a serious health condition that requires intensive hospital care. Here’s the lowdown on Sir Alex Ferguson’s condition, the signs and symptoms and how it’s treated. What is a brain haemorrhage? A brain haemorrhage is a type of stroke which is caused by an artery bursting in the brain. This causes bleeding in the surrounding tissues, and kills brain cells. The meaning of haemorrhage is literally “blood bursting forth”, and the condition causes around 13% of strokes. What are the symptoms of a brain haemorrhage? When blood from a trauma irritates brain tissue, swelling happens and the pooled blood collects into a mass. This increases pressure on brain tissue nearby, which reduces vital blood flow and kills off brain cells. The symptoms of a brain haemorrhage include: Sudden severe headache Seizures Arm or leg weakness Nausea or vomiting Tingling or numbness Difficulty speaking, swallowing, writing and reading latest in healthHealth … [Read more...] about What causes a brain haemorrhage, what are the signs and symptoms of Sir Alex Ferguson’s condition and what’s the survival rate?
