There are Symtoms of Internal Bleeding From Pradaxa that you must be aware of. As a geriatric Social worker I am very concerned about seniprs on pradaxa. There have been Pradaxa lawsuits filed by pradaxa lawyers due to fatalities from pradaxa.

What are the signs and symptoms of internal bleeding?

The symptoms of internal bleeding depend upon where the bleeding is located, how much bleeding has occurred, and what structures and functions in the body are affected. Blood outside the circulatory system (the heart and blood vessels) is very irritating to tissues, causing inflammation and pain. Examples of some internal bleeding situations are listed below.

Intracranial bleeding from trauma or from a leaking aneurysm often causes pain but may also present with altered mental function. Neurological exam exam results range from a near-normal exam to confusion to coma  Symptoms of stroke including weaknessslurred speech, and loss of vision, may also be associated with intracerebral bleeding. The signs and symptoms depend upon where and how much blood there is in the brain. If the bleeding continues, symptoms become progressive and easier to recognize.

Intra-abdominal bleeding may be hidden and present only with pain, but if there is enough blood loss, the patient may complain of weakness, llightheadedness, shortness of breath and other symptoms of shock and decreased blood pressure. Once again, the symptoms depend upon where in the abdomen the bleeding occurs.

  • If there is gastrointestinal bleeding, the patient may vomit bright red blood, or if it has been in the stomach for a period of time, the vomit may look like coffee grounds. Bowel movements may be bloody or they may be black and tarry again depending upon the location of the bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • If the internal bleeding causes blood to spill into the peritoneum, there can be a significant amount of pain with any movement, and the abdomen can become tense and feel rigid to touch.
  • Sometimes intra-abdominal blood will track toward the skin and can be appreciated on physical examination. Cullen's sign is the term used to refer to the appearance of bruising surrounding the umbilicus. Grey-Turner sign is bruising in the flanks.
