Time from onset of SIRS to antibiotic administration and outcomes after subarachnoid hemorrhage
Severity of Illness Index
Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome
In this cohort of patients with SAH, time from SIRS onset until antibiotic administration was not related to functional outcomes. Our results indicate that SIRS is nonspecific in patients with SAH, and support the safety of withholding antibiotics in those who lack additional evidence of infection or hemodynamic deterioration.
