Chou, R., Totten, A.M., Pappas, M., et al. (2017). Glasgow Coma Scale for Field Triage of Trauma: A Systematic Review.
This review was prepared by the Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center to assess the predictive utility, reliability, and ease of use of the total Glasgow Coma Scale (tGCS) versus the motor component of the Glasgow Coma Scale (mGCS) for field triage of trauma. The comparative effects on clinical decision-making and outcomes are also discussed.
