Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating condition. It carries a high mortality rate, with 12% of patients dying before reaching the hospital. Aside from its neurological morbidities, SAH is associated with significant medical complications. Cardiac manifestations are common and can impact morbidity and mortality in SAH patients. This article will discuss the cardiac manifestations of SAH.
