Does anyone know of a reason to contraindicate vasopressors in a stroke pt?
TMK, and if IIRC most bleeds are treated as surgical (epidural/ subdural) vs. non-surgical (SAH/ ICH). More often the latter is a "wait and see" approach with an appropriate, and closely monitored guideline with regards to their SBP.

It's more of a "do we need to operate now, or are we going to let the brain heal on its own?" There's no real reason in my mind, or opinion that vasoactive medications should be utilized. Sometimes less is more. This seems to be one of those times, and rightfully so.

Edit: @CWATT here's a pretty standard/ straightforward treatment algorithm and article for the acute (atrauamtic) ICH:
