Usually this is the result of some of the factors that were crucial in their development, and remain important in their day to day application, being overlooked. It is therefore appropriate to re-visit some of the features that are the basis of reliable, robust use of the scales and in the interpretation of their findings. Unable to display preview.

Coma is unresponsiveness from which the patient cannot be aroused and in which the patient's eyes remain closed. Impaired consciousness refers to similar, less severe disturbances of consciousness; these disturbances are not considered coma.

Causes may be structural or nonstructural eg, toxic or metabolic disturbances. Damage may be focal or diffuse. Diagnosis is clinical; identification of cause requires laboratory tests and neuroimaging.
