A Head Injury Record Form for an Accident Unit

  • Andrew K. Marsden (a1) and David J. Price (a1)


In 1981 we described the introduction and development of a coma scale for use in Head Injured patients. The scale has become adopted for routine use in the Accident and Emergency Unit at Pinderfields General Hospital, Wakefield, and at other centers, for example the Emergency Department at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary finds the scale more sensitive than its own Glasgow Coma Scale in monitoring the course of accident victims.
