Reliability of ratings on the Glasgow Outcome Scales
from in-person and telephone structured interviews.
Patients were given supportive treatment and follow up of the patient was done on 7th day of admission using Glasgow outcome scale

In our study the outcome of TBI patients are assed by extended Glasgow outcome scale
, shows 42% mortality was seen due to severe injury, 8% has severe disability (2-4), 22% had moderate disability (5-6), 28% had good recovery.
Following treatment, just 15% of the 157 who received dexamethasone had unfavorable Glasgow Outcome Scale
(GOS) scores of 1-4 (from death to moderate disability), compared with 25% of the 144 who received placebo.
It is reported that the more severe the injury to the brain according to the Glasgow outcome scale
(GOS) grade, the higher the risk for the development of posttraumatic epilepsy.
Follow-up assessment periods may be too brief, because it increasingly appears that Glasgow Outcome Scale
scores improve greatly over time, but at a very slow pace, he said.

Although he did not use a specific measure of QOL, Alexander measured health and functioning by using the Glasgow Outcome Scale
, open-ended questions, and physical and neurological examination.
As measured by the Glasgow Outcome Scale
at a mean follow-up of 20 months, outcomes were almost identical when aspirin users (3.
These categories collectively are known as the Glasgow Outcome Scale
(GOS; Jennett & Bond, 1975) and will be discussed further in the following sections of this paper.
