ICH

Traumatic:
-subarachnoid
-subdural
-epidural

Spontaneous:
-subarachnoid
-intraparenchymal

Airway management in patients with suspected increased ICP:
-pretreat with fentanyl to prevent increase in ICP during airway manipulation
-paralytics: conflicting studies re whether sux or roc have higher risk of further increasing ICP
-provide good analgesia and sedation post-intubation to avoid sympathetic surges with airway pain/manipulation (no suctioning!)
