Chandrasekhar Putcha, S., Mina Khani, Mohammadreza Khani, Paul Miller

Abstract


The main objective of this research is to predict the occurrence of subdural hematoma which is connected to occurrence of stroke. The occurrence of stroke in turn can be predicted by calculating the associated risk factors in individuals based on the method developed by Putcha, et al. (2009). The variables considered in this study are: Age (AGE), Diastolic Blood Pressure (BPD), Systolic Blood Pressure (BPS),Total Cholesterol Level (TCL), HDL, Fasting Glucose (FBS), Creatinine (CRE), Triglycerides (TG) and Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) using the principles of probability, statistics and risk analysis for limited patient data that was available at the time of completion of this research paper.
