Glasgow Coma Scale

The Glasgow Coma Scale may be a neurological scale which aims to offer a reliable and objective way of recording the state of an individual's consciousness for initial also as subsequent assessment. The initial score correlates with the severity of brain injury and prognosis. The Glasgow Coma Scale provides a score within the range 3-15; patients with many 3-8 are usually said to be during a coma. GCS was wont to assess an individual's level of consciousness after a head injury, and therefore the scale is now employed by emergency medical services, nurses, and physicians as being applicable to all or any acute medical and trauma patients. In hospitals, it's also utilized in monitoring patients in medical care units.
