  • AVPU
  • During the primary survey a basic neurological assessment is made, known by the mnemonic AVPU (alert, verbal stimuli response, painful stimuli response, or unresponsive). (wikipedia.org)
  • The AVPU scale (an acronym from "alert, voice, pain, unresponsive") is a system by which a health care professional can measure and record a patient's responsiveness, indicating their level of consciousness. (wikipedia.org)
  • The AVPU scale should be assessed using these three identifiable traits, looking for the best response of each. (wikipedia.org)
  • univariate
  • Number of DW lesions in the thalamus, basal ganglia, and internal capsule and number of SWI lesions in the mesencephalon correlated significantly with outcome in univariate analysis. (diva-portal.org)

  • initial assessment
  • The first initial assessment that should take place with every athlete found to be unconscious after head or neck trauma is the "ABC's" (airway, breathing, and circulation). (wikipedia.org)
  • 1980s
  • The scale was originally introduced in 1957 by Dr. John Rankin of Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow, Scotland, and then modified to its currently accepted form by Prof. C. Warlow's group at Western General Hospital in Edinburgh for use in the UK-TIA study in the late 1980s. (wikipedia.org)

  • prediction
  • In this study, three magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences were used to quantify the anatomical distribution of lesions, to grade DAI according to the Adams grading system, and to evaluate the value of lesion localization in combination with clinical prognostic factors to improve outcome prediction.

  • GCS was initially used to assess level of consciousness after head injury, and the scale is now used by first responders, EMS, nurses, and doctors as being applicable to all acute medical and trauma patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • months
  • At 3 months agitation and apathy were associated with poor outcome at one year. (ovid.com)
  • Agitation and apathy are uncommon at three months but when present are associated with poor outcome at one year after injury. (ovid.com)
  • poor
  • Presence of significant agitation at 3 weeks after injury was not associated with poor outcome. (ovid.com)
  • Most agitated behaviours in the early phase are transient and are not associated with poor outcome. (ovid.com)

  • The patient can perform the assessment retrospectively or it can be done using medical history. (wikipedia.org)
  • The four possible recordable outcomes are: Alert: The patient is fully awake (although not necessarily oriented). (wikipedia.org)
  • Unresponsive: Sometimes seen noted as 'Unconscious', this outcome is recorded if the patient does not give any eye, voice or motor response to voice or pain. (wikipedia.org)
