  3. Glasgow Coma Scale • Glagow Coma Scale • Score: 13

  4. Interpretation GCS 13 = E4 V4 M5 at Generally, brain injury is classified as: • Severe, with GCS ≤ 8 • Moderate, GCS 9 - 12 • Minor, GCS ≥ 13

  5. Glagow Coma Scale • Score: 7

  6. GCS7 = E2V1M4 • Severe, with GCS ≤ 8 • Moderate, GCS 9 - 12 • Minor, GCS ≥ 13
