Brain stem herniation is a very serious disorder in which an excess of intracranial pressure causes part of the brain to be squeezed through the foramen magnum at the base of the skull. Increased pressure on the brain stem can lead to blood pressure and breathing problems and two symptoms of a brain stem herniation is cardiac and respiratory arrest. Other symptoms of a brain stem herniation are a loss or brain stem reflexes including blinking, gagging and occasionally a loss of consciousness. The increased pressure in the brain can be from a number of disorders, including brain tumors, hemorrhages, and strokes. Treatment to remove swelling is critical when a patient is diagnosed with a brain stem herniation, but brain damage is almost always a side effect and the risk of death is very high.
