0:24  Intracranial Hemorrhage Recovery For Newborns: Risks of Intraventricular Hemorrhage

Once a baby is stabilized with intracranial hemorrhage or intraventricular hemorrhage, the baby will get out of the hospital at the same time that it normally would. If the baby is stabilized, it can take food well and eventually could nipple and drink from a bottle, the baby is going to go home at the same time that other babies would at that gestational age. 

0:51 Ventricles On The Brain

Some babies will develop complications from intracranial hemorrhage. These occur because the blood sometimes clots in the ventricles and it includes the normal flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into and out of the ventricles. 

Cerebrospinal fluid is a clear, colorless body fluid found within the tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord of all vertebrates. CSF is produced by specialized ependymal cells in the choroid plexus of the ventricles of the brain and absorbed in the arachnoid granulations.

1:10 Signs Of Intracranial Hemorrhage

This can actually cause a buildup of spinal fluid and it can cause the brain to swell, and when that happens, the baby can have symptoms like seizures or lethargy, and in fact, if it goes on long enough, the head can start to enlarge. 

So with some of the bleeds that are more severe, the neonatologists will tell you to watch for certain signs and symptoms like I’ve described. With the more simple bleeds, that’s not going to be the case. 

Now, most neonatologists will continue to follow all babies who have had an intracranial or intraventricular hemorrhage for several months so that those babies can be checked out for head growth, body development, neurologic involvement, and that occurs in what most neonatal units call the neonatal follow-up clinic. That usually takes about a year until the doctors will dismiss you from that clinic. Also, you will be observed by your pediatrician during that first year. So you’ll have two sets of eyes looking at the baby and making sure that everything is going well. 

As I said before, most intracranial or intraventricular hemorrhages do well, but there are some that will have problems and you’ll be instructed on that by the people who discharged the baby from the hospital.
