The principle of parsimony: Glasgow Coma Scale
score predicts mortality as well as the APACHE II score for stroke patients.
The measurement characteristics and predictive power of the following instruments were reviewed: Fisher Scale (FS), Glasgow Coma Scale
(GCS), Glasgow Outcome Score (GOS), Hunt and Hess (HH) Scale, Karnovsky Performance Scale (KPS), and the World Federation of Neurological Surgeons (WFNS) Scale.
Variation among trauma centers' calculation of Glasgow Coma Scale
score: Results of a national survey.
In order to identify research that investigated the predictive ability of the GCS in patients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, a search was done on MEDLINE[R] and CINAHL[R] for articles published from 1974, when the GCS was introduced, until 2005, using combinations of the following key words: Glasgow Coma Scale
, GCS, traumatic brain injury, head injury, predictor, and outcome.
Efficacy of the motor component of the Glasgow Coma Scale
in trauma triage.
Patients ranged in age from 19 to 57 (mean 32 years) with a post-injury Glasgow Coma Scale
score of approximately 9.
In addition, altered consciousness and low Glasgow coma scale
score are predictors of maternal mortality (6).
Glasgow Coma Scale
score may predict functional outcome in patients older than 60 years, and predicts mortality rate irrespective of age in patients with spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage.
In Synthetic Blood's open label, Phase II pilot study being conducted at Virginia Commonwealth University, Oxycyte is administered to patients with severe traumatic brain injury and a Glasgow Coma Scale
score of 3-9.
patients without disturbances of consciousness on admission-clinical assessment using Hunt and Hess Scale, Spetzler-Martin Scale, and Glasgow Coma Scale
(logical verbal contact with the patient).
Glasgow Coma Scale
in the prediction of outcome after early aneurysm surgery.
Interrater reliability of the Glasgow coma scale
among nurses in sub-specialties of critical care.
From the Glasgow Coma Scale
to the Gail model for breast cancer risk assessment, many decision support tools have found their way into the handheld arena.
The first patient was a 26-year-old man with chronic otitis media who presented to a regional emergency department with a Glasgow Coma Scale
score of 3, fixed pupils of 7 mm and a temperature of 40.
ECG recordings, serum electrolyte levels, Glasgow Coma Scale
scores and Hunt-Hess Scale scores of all patients were examined.
