Practical Handbook of Neurosurgery pp Cite as. Since they were described, the Glasgow Coma Scale [ 6 ] and Outcome Scale [ 1 ] have gained wide acceptance and are now in use throughout the world. Nevertheless, such commonplace use can engender a feeling of familiarity that can lead to them being used less effectively than ideal. Usually this is the result of some of the factors that were crucial in their development, and remain important in their day to day application, being overlooked. It is therefore appropriate to re-visit some of the features that are the basis of reliable, robust use of the scales and in the interpretation of their findings.

The Moscow scale has good predictive value but is little used by the medical community.

Coma is unresponsiveness from which the patient cannot be aroused and in which the patient's eyes remain closed. Impaired consciousness refers to similar, less severe disturbances of consciousness; these disturbances are not considered coma. The mechanism for coma or impaired consciousness involves dysfunction of both cerebral hemispheres or of the reticular activating system also known as the ascending arousal system. Causes may be structural or nonstructural eg, toxic or metabolic disturbances. Damage may be focal or diffuse.
