This study was conducted to identify the factors associated with the ruptured intracranial aneurysm (RIA) among demographic, admission to hospital, clinical, aneurysym itself and lifestyle characteristics. Medical records of RIA patients and un-RIA patients which had been admitted to undergo treatment including surgery (From January to December 2016) were included into data analysis. Multiple logistic regression showed that two and more than warning signs (14.14 (CI: 1.25-159.40)) indicated the greatest odds ratio with RIA, was followed by headache more than 3 scores (13.95 (CI: 3.68-52.83)), the admission via emergency room (13.62 (CI: 4.85-38.26)), single marital status (9.72 (CI: 2.22-42.49)), 1 mmHg increased systolic blood pressure (1.04 (CI: 1.01-1.08)), 1 score increased GCS (0.58 (CI: 0.37-0.90)), arrythmia finding in electrocardiogram (3.70 (CI: 1.22-11.22)) and increased age (0.95 (CI: 0.91-0.99)). The risk groups having factors associated with RIA were identified. Preventive activities including routine assessment should be done before developing the rupture and urgent care should be needed after developing the rupture for risk groups.
