    KEPPEL Shipyard managing director Nelson Yeo died yesterday morning in London after suffering a brain haemorrhage last weekend while on a business trip.

    Mr Yeo, 55, is survived by his wife Siew Hua and two sons.

    They were by his bedside.

    Chor How Jat, executive director of Keppel Shipyard, has assumed the position of acting managing director and will take over the yard's business and operations, Keppel Corporation said yesterday.
    Mr Yeo, who is also managing director (marine) of Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), began his career at Keppel Shipyard as a management trainee in 1982.

    Brain haemorrhage (bleeding):

    Causes, symptoms, treatments

    A brain haemorrhage is a type of stroke. It’s caused by an artery in the brain bursting and causing localised bleeding in the surrounding tissues. This bleeding kills brain cells.

    Haemorrhage literally means “ blood bursting forth”. Brain haemorrhages are also called cerebral haemorrhages, intracranial haemorrhages or intracerebral haemorrhages. They account for about 13% of strokes. Oscar-winning director of The English Patient Anthony Minghella, American President Franklin D. Roosevelt and actor Richard Burton all died of brain haemorrhages.

    What happens during a brain haemorrhage?

    When blood from a trauma irritates brain tissues, it causes swelling. This is known as cerebral oedema. The pooled blood collects into a mass called a haematoma. These conditions increase pressure on nearby brain tissue, and that reduces vital blood flow and kills brain cells.

    Bleeding can occur inside the brain, between the brain and the membranes that cover it, between the layers of the brain’s covering or between the skull and the covering of the brain.

    What causes bleeding in the brain?

    There are several risk factors and causes of brain haemorrhages. The most common include:

    Head trauma. Injury is the most common cause of bleeding in the brain for those under 50.
    High blood pressure. This chronic condition can, over a long period of time, weaken blood vessel walls. Untreated high blood pressure is a major preventable cause of brain haemorrhages.
    Aneurysm. This is a weakening in a blood vessel wall that swells. It can burst and bleed into the brain, leading to a stroke.

    Blood vessel abnormalities. Weaknesses in the blood vessels in and around the brain may be present at birth and diagnosed only if symptoms develop.
    Amyloid angiopathy. This is an abnormality of the blood vessel walls that sometimes occurs with ageing. It may cause many small, unnoticed bleeds before causing a large one.
    Blood or bleeding disorders. Haemophilia and sickle cell anaemia can both contribute to decreased levels of blood platelets.
    Liver disease. This condition is associated with increased bleeding in general.
    Brain tumours.

    What are the symptoms of brain bleeding?

    The symptoms of a brain haemorrhage can vary. They depend on the location of the bleeding, the severity of the bleeding, and the amount of tissue affected. Symptoms may develop suddenly or over time. They may progressively worsen or suddenly appear.

    If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, you may have a brain haemorrhage. This is a life-threatening condition, and you should call 999 or go to the Accident and Emergency department of your local hospital immediately. The symptoms include:

    A sudden severe headache
    Seizures with no previous history of seizures
    Weakness in an arm or leg
    Nausea or vomiting
    Decreased alertness, lethargy
    Changes in vision
    Tingling or numbness
    Difficulty speaking or understanding speech

    Difficulty swallowing
    Difficulty writing or reading
    Loss of fine motor skills
    Loss of coordination
    Loss of balance
    An abnormal sense of taste
    Loss of consciousness
    Bear in mind that many of these symptoms are often caused by conditions other than brain haemorrhages.

    Brain haemorrhage (bleeding): Causes, symptoms, treatments

    How is a brain haemorrhage treated?

    Once you see a doctor, he or she can determine which part of the brain is affected based on your symptoms.

    Doctors may run a variety of imaging tests, such as a CT scan, which can reveal internal bleeding or blood accumulation, or an MRI. A neurological examination and eye examination, which can show swelling of the optic nerve, may also be performed. Blood tests and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) may also be needed.

    Treatment for bleeding in the brain depends on the location, cause and extent of the haemorrhage. Surgery may be needed to alleviate swelling and prevent further bleeding. Certain medications may also be prescribed. These include painkillers, corticosteroids or diuretics to reduce swelling, and anticonvulsants to control seizures. Blood products or intravenous fluids may be administered if needed.

    Can people recover from brain haemorrhages and are there possible complications?

    How well a patient responds to a brain haemorrhage depends on the size of the haemorrhage and the amount of swelling.

    Some patients recover completely. Possible complications include stroke, loss of brain function or side effects from medications or treatments. Death is possible, and may quickly occur despite prompt medical treatment.

    Can brain haemorrhages be prevented?

    Because the majority of brain haemorrhages are associated with specific risk factors, you can minimise your risk in the following ways:

    Treat hypertension. Studies show that 80% of cerebral haemorrhage patients have a history of high blood pressure. The single most important thing you can do is control yours through diet, exercise, and medication.
    Don’t smoke.
    Don’t use drugs. Cocaine can increase the risk of bleeding in the brain.
    Drive carefully, and wear your seat belt.
    If you ride a motorbike, always wear a helmet.
    Investigate corrective surgery. If you suffer from abnormalities, such as aneurysms, surgery may help to prevent future bleeding.
    Be careful with “coumarin anticoagulants”. If you take warfarin, follow up regularly with your doctor to make sure your blood levels are in the correct range.

    How does life begin at 55? Granted your housing loan is almost cleared, but your health is not as good as in your 30s. You are more wrinkly and the only thing that gets your dick up is when you use your finger to lift it up for a pee.
