Glasgow Coma Scale
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) assesses awareness of the environment and cognition in patients with impaired consciousness. Its purpose is to standardize documentation of changes in neurologic status, and aid in prognosis.
GCS has been available for years on Palm and Windows Mobile platforms. For the first time it is now available in a more intuitive and easier-to-use form for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This is the fastest and most intuitive version of GCS for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
GCS provides physicians, nurses, other healthcare providers, and students quick assessment of Visual, Verbal, and Motor Response, recommended documentation, evidence-based instructions on the proper procedure and documentation, and a cumulative score.
GCS is the only one on iTunes that provides appropriate scoring for clients unable to speak due to dsyphasia or intubation which often not included in other versions of the GCS.
This is also the only Glasgow Coma Scale that provides complete evidence-based instructions for it most valid and reliable use.

I used it at work yesterday to quickly figure out a GCS and It gave me a score of 1. It is impossible to have a score less than 3. How can it give you a score of one when the lowest possible score is 3 and the highest possible score is 15. Needs some improvement. I would look around untill they fix it.
I emailed the support person months ago about how you can have a GCS score less than 3? The entire medical community understands this except the creator of this app? Don't waste your time with this.
Waste of $0.99!
