Assessment of coma and impaired consciousness. A practical scale.
Structured interviews for the Glasgow Outcome Scale and the extended Glasgow Outcome Scale: guidelines for their use.
Assessment of the GOS using a standard format with a written protocol is practical and reliable and a set of guidelines are outlined that are directed at the main problems encountered in applying the G OS.

It is concluded that, in its improved structured format, the Glasgow Outcome Scale should remain the primary method of assessing outcome in trials of the management of severe head injury.
Assessment and prognosis of coma after head injury
The Glasgow Coma Scale, based upon eye opening, verbal and motor responses, has proved a practical and consistent means of monitoring the state of head injured patients and reliably predicted outcome in the majority of 92 new patients.

The incidence of disability in young people and adults admitted with a head injury is higher than expected and reflects the high rate of sequelae previously unrecognised in the large number of patients admitted to hospital with an apparently mild head injury.
