Abstract

Probability of survival at 3 yrs after mechanical ventilation for an intracerebral hemorrhage was >50%. Age was an important determinant of long-term survival. Forty-two percent of long-term survivors were independent for activities of daily living. Only a few long-term survivors had a very high degree of disability.
