Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: control
Subjects in this group will undergo sham preconditioning. A blood pressure cuff will be placed around the leg and inflated just lightly to a pressure of 30mmHg, not enough to affect arterial circulation. This will be maintained for 10min followed by 5min of deflation. This will constitute one conditioning cycle. There will be 3 sham conditioning cycles per treatment session.
Other: ischemic conditioning group
application of a blood pressure cuff around a leg and inflating the cuff to 200mmHg to induce limb ischemia for 10min followed by 5min reperfusion. this will be done for 3 cycles every 24-48hours during the first 14 days after subarachnoid hemorrhage
Other Name: limb preconditioning

Active Comparator: treatment group
Study personnel will place a blood pressure cuff around the subject's leg and use it to interrupt the circulation to the leg for 10 minutes followed by release of the blood pressure for 5 minutes. This will be repeated for a total of 3 times every 24 to 48 hours up to 14 days. The cuff will be inflated for 10 minutes and then deflated for 5 minutes. There will be 3 cycles of this. The cuff will be inflated to 200mmHg to induce ischemia, confirmed by palpation of pedal pulses.
Other: ischemic conditioning group
application of a blood pressure cuff around a leg and inflating the cuff to 200mmHg to induce limb ischemia for 10min followed by 5min reperfusion. this will be done for 3 cycles every 24-48hours during the first 14 days after subarachnoid hemorrhage
Other Name: limb preconditioning
