New Glasgow Coma Scale–Pupils Score and Multifactor Probability Outcome Charts for Use in Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury

The University of Glasgow’s Sir Graham Teasdale, co-creator of the Glasgow Coma Scale, has teamed with Drs. Paul M. Brennan and Gordon D. Murray of the University of Edinburgh to create new assessment tools that build on the Glasgow Coma Scale in order to provide greater information on injury severity and prognosis in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) while still offering simplicity of use. These tools are described and evaluated in two companion papers published April 10 in the Journal of Neurosurgery (https://thejns.org/doi/full/10.3171/2017.12.JNS172780 and https://thejns.org/doi/full/10.3171/2017.12.JNS172782).
