This service is available in an emergency or for ongoing treatment of a stroke, brain aneurysm, concussion, brain tumor and epilepsy.

Brain aneurysm

A brain aneurysm occurs when part of an artery wall weakens and swells. Symptoms include:

  • Sudden, severe headache that is different from past headaches
  • Severe neck pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Confusion or loss of consciousness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Nausea with vomiting
  • Seizures

If you or a loved one experiences these symptoms, call 911 immediately. If an aneurysm ruptures, it is a life-threatening medical emergency.
