Patients with aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (aSAH) frequently require Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, pre-operatively and more often, post-operatively due to the need for ventilatory support and specialized monitoring. We aimed to evaluate the frequency of post-operative ventilatory requirement in patients with aSAH and identify the possible predictive factors that might influence the need of post-operative ventilation in these patients. METHODS: We retrospectively identified a five-year data of all patients with aSAH who underwent surgical clipping using a structured proforma. Aneurysm was confirmed by Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) or Computerized Tomographic Angiography (CTA).
