Severe headaches, projectile vomiting, focal neurological deficits and early onset seizure are regarded as early warning symptoms of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

Here, we reviewed warning symptoms and other predictive factors in the emergency room (ER) setting and examined their correlations with mortality.
