• Measures
  • In standardized samples, WTAR scores were shown to correlate highly with measures of verbal IQ (r = .75), verbal comprehension (r = .74), and full scale IQ (r = .73). (wikipedia.org)
  • this flaw can easily be overcome by following the assessment up with the FIM, which measures functionality in more detail. (wikipedia.org)
  • widely
  • It has become the most widely used clinical outcome measure for stroke clinical trials. (wikipedia.org)
  • The GOAT is the most widely used standardized scale for the prospective assessment of PTA in the United States and Canada. (wikipedia.org)
  • Originally designed for emergency situations where only one doctor and one nurse are present, ATLS is now widely accepted as the standard of care for initial assessment and treatment in trauma centers. (wikipedia.org)
  • A patient is assessed against the criteria of the scale, and the resulting points give a patient score between 3 (indicating deep unconsciousness) and either 14 (original scale) or 15 (the more widely used modified or revised scale). (wikipedia.org)
  • In the design of WTAR, the demographic prediction tables were co-normed with the widely used Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) and Wechsler Memory Scale (WMS). (wikipedia.org)
  • This gives it an advantage for comparative analyses on predicted and actual general intellectual and memory function over similar reading tests such as the National Adult Reading Test (NART), which do not share normative data sets with the other widely used Wechsler assessments. (wikipedia.org)
  • He was President of the International Society for Technology Assessment and in 1984 he published High Technology Medicine: Benefits and Burdens followed a series of BBC talks Doctors, Patients & Responsibilities which were widely praised. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Assessment/treatment of neurological disorders, with emphasis in neurorehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation and neuropsychological/neurovocational & cognitive/psychological functional abilities assessment. (docplayer.net)
  • The Resuscitation Outcome Consortium is supported by a series of cooperative agreements from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in partnership with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Institute of Circulatory and Respiratory Health, Defence Research and Development Canada, and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Consequently
  • Consequently, individuals who would have been automatically entitled to CAT benefits must now wait at least 6 months for the assessment. (mondaq.com)
  • 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)
  • consciousness
  • 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)
  • pupil
  • A numeric scale allows a more rigorous interpretation and classification of the pupil response. (wikipedia.org)
  • months
  • The GCS has been replaced with the highly specialized Glasgow Outcome Scale Extended (GOS-E). The GOS-E can only be administered after 6 months from the date of the injury. (mondaq.com)
  • patient
  • The SF-36 is a validated survey of patient health consisting of eight scaled scores. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The intent of the scale was to measure the general functional changes of the patient throughout the course of recovery. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • injury
  • This study will provide the first comprehensive estimates on outcomes of serious road traffic injury in India, including economic and social costs, and the impact on individuals and families. (bmj.com)
  • However, with the lengthy delay that will result from disputes over GOS-E assessments, brain injured individuals will likely have to pay a portion of their recovery expenses in the interim periods, or may be relegated to relying on a public health system that is ill-equipped to service the needs stemming from a brain injury. (mondaq.com)
  • The scale was used to rate the effects of injury and decide how long recovery might take. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the point of the scale is to track the patient's progress over time while the GOS is used to simply determine the extent of a brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • aims
  • This study aims to determine the outcomes of road traffic injuries on function and health-related quality of life, to assess their social impact and to weigh the economic cost of road traffic crashes in an urban setting in India. (bmj.com)
  • commonly
  • The primary outcome of interest is commonly survival or a measure of morbidity (eg, complications) or resource use (eg, hospital or intensive care unit [ICU] length of stay [LOS]), but may be any primary endpoint of interest (eg, compliance to an evidence-based procedure). (mhmedical.com)

  • Standardised tools will be used to collect data on health and social outcomes, and on the economic impact of road traffic crashes. (bmj.com)
  • effectively
  • While the tests and scales may vary greatly from sport to sport, in the end, they effectively gain the same information regardless. (wikipedia.org)
  • In many countries T3 is not available and oral therapy with T4 can be used effectively without major significant difference in outcomes. (hindawi.com)
  • medical
