Abstract

The Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was designed to objectively, easily, methodically evaluate the neurological status of patients with impaired consciousness especially after traumatic brain injury. The score is used to grade and plan treatment of patients with head injury. It can also be used to monitor neurological status of critically ill patients. There are three parameters used- eye opening, verbal response and best motor response with the score ranging from 3-15. The technique, interpretation and certain practical issues concerning the GCS are discussed.
