Abstract

BACKGROUND: Autonomous innervations of the lungs are maintained by cervical sympathetic and vagal nerves. Sympathetic overactivity-induced neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) is known as a serious complication of subarachnoid hemorrhage, but the rational neuronal mechanism of that overactivity has not yet been clarified fully. The aim of this study was to examine whether there is a relationship between vagal nerve ischemia related sympathetic overactivity and neurogenic pulmonary edema in subarachnoid hemorrhage.
