2. Comparison of the AVPU Scale and the Pediatric GCS in Prehospital Setting. (Abstract)

Comparison of the AVPU Scale and the Pediatric GCS in Prehospital Setting. The pediatric Glasgow coma scale (pGCS) is a consciousness score that, although widely applied, requires skill to apply. The AVPU scale uses four simple categories (Alert; Verbal response; response to Pain; Unresponsive), but has not been studied in a large pediatric population. We compared the performance of the AVPU and pGCS scales in a large pediatric cohort in an acute, prehospital setting.In a six-month-long (...) for V; 4-12 for P; and 3-5 for U. The positive predictive value to detect patients with pGCS ≥ 8 for AVPU category V was 100%.We demonstrated good correlation of simple and fast consciousness AVPU scoring to the standard pGCS in a large cohort of pediatric patients in a prehospital setting. The AVPU category "V" identifies patients with a pGCS of or exceeding 8 and, therefore, identifies children at low risk requiring more invasive procedures or intensive care treatment.Glasgow coma scale (GCS

5. The inter-rater reliability and prognostic value of coma scales in Nepali children with acute encephalitis syndrome Full Text available with Trip Pro

), Blantyre coma scale (BCS) and the Alert, Verbal, Pain, Unresponsive scale (AVPU) are alternatives to the GCS which can be used. Methods Children aged 1-14 years who presented to Kanti Children's Hospital, Kathmandu with AES between September 2010 and November 2011 were recruited. All four coma scales (GCS, ACS, BCS and AVPU) were applied on admission, 48 h later and on discharge. Inter-rater reliability (unweighted kappa) was measured for each. Correlation and agreement between total coma score (...) The inter-rater reliability and prognostic value of coma scales in Nepali children with acute encephalitis syndrome Background Acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) is a common cause of coma in Nepali children. The Glasgow coma scale (GCS) is used to assess the level of coma in these patients and predict outcome. Alternative coma scales may have better inter-rater reliability and prognostic value in encephalitis in Nepali children, but this has not been studied. The Adelaide coma scale (ACS

6. Comparison of mental-status scales for predicting mortality on the general wards. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Comparison of mental-status scales for predicting mortality on the general wards. Altered mental status is a significant predictor of mortality in inpatients. Several scales exist to characterize mental status, including the AVPU (Alert, responds to Voice, responds to Pain, Unresponsive) scale, which is used in many early-warning scores in the general-ward setting. The use of the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and Richmond Agitation Sedation Scale (RASS) is not well established in this population.To (...) compare the accuracies of AVPU, GCS, and RASS for predicting inpatient mortality.Retrospective cohort study.Single, urban, academic medical center.Adult inpatients on the general wards.Nurses recorded GCS and RASS on consecutive adult hospitalizations.

familiarity with scale components, feasibility of use with older adults, time to administer, and strength of evidence for their performance in the prehospital setting. After review and discussion of aggregated ratings, the panel identified the Simplified Motor Scale, GCS-Motor Component, and AVPU (alert, voice, pain, unresponsive) as the strongest scales, but determined that none meet all EMS provider and patient needs due to poor usability and lack of supportive evidence. The panel proposed (...) Identification of a Neurologic Scale That Optimizes EMS Detection of Older Adult Traumatic Brain Injury Patients Who Require Transport to a Trauma Center.
