What is the Glasgow Coma Scale?

One tool used by medical professionals is the Glasgow Coma Scale.  It is a 15-point scale used by all sorts of medical professionals to evaluate a patient for level of consciousness and brain function following a head injury.  A score of 13-15 in a patient with a head injury is generally considered to show a mild or minor brain injury classification.  A score of 9 to 12 is moderate.  A score below 9 indicates a severe brain injury.
