Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) - total score

General Details:

Name:
Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) - total score
Steward:
NINDS
Definition:
Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) - Total Score. The GCS is a standardized instrument for assessing the level of consciousness. It evaluates three aspects of responsiveness: eye opening, motor response, verbal response. The total score is the sum of the scores for the three response types. (3-15)
