Interpreting a Glasgow Coma Scale score

Several of those that we here at Phillips, Phillips, and Smith-Delach, LLC have worked with in the past in Pittsburgh describe those minutes after their loved ones have experienced brain injuries to be incredibly traumatic. You likely know what they mean if you have been through such an experience yourself. You may witness healthcare professionals administering treatment and using jargon that is difficult to understand. This may include seemingly random numbers, which are in fact scores detailing your family member or friend’s level of consciousness. Understanding this scoring system may help you know to what extent he or she is injured, and to what degree he or she may recover.

Failure to properly treat Lyme disease can lead to a host of serious complications, which can greatly impact the life of the sufferer.
