The GCS has been shown to have statistical correlation with a broad array of adverse neurologic outcomes, including brain injury, need for neurosurgery, and mortality. The GCS has been incorporated into numerous guidelines and assessment scores e. In some patients, it may be impossible to assess one or more of the three components of the coma scale.
Verbal: intubation. All eye, verbal, motor : sedation, paralysis, and ventilation eliminating all responses. If a component is untestable, a score of 1 should not be assigned Teasdale In this circumstance, summation of the findings into a total Glasgow Coma Score is invalid.
The 3 parts of the Glasgow Coma Scale are charted independently, and the position can be recorded as NT not testable , with an option of indicating the reason, e.
C for eye closure and T for intubation. A GCS of 8 should not be used in isolation to make a determination of whether to intubate a patient, but does suggest a level of obtundation that should be evaluated carefully.
