Comparison of the Full Outline of UnResponsiveness
score and the Glasgow Coma Scale in predicting mortality in critically ill patients.
Frequency of distribution of Glasgow Come Scale (range: 3-15) and Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) scores (range: 0-16) among the study population was represented in Figures 1 and 2.
Recognising failures of GCS in assessing patients' level of consciousness, Wijdicks and core-searchers [8,9] proposed the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness Scale.
Overall mortality observed in our study was 30.61% which is nearer to the study of Kishor Khanal et al  who compared outcome predictions by the Glasgow Coma Scale and the full outline of unresponsiveness score in the neurological and neurosurgical patients in the intensive care unit, wherein overall mortality observed was 29.9%.
Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve (ROC) of Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (Area under the Curve = 0.860)
A comparative study of Glasgow Coma Scale and Full Outline of Unresponsiveness
scores for predicting long-term outcome after brain injury.
The Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) score (Fig 1, Table 1) measures reduced consciousness, or the depth of coma, and provides more neurologic details than the GCS (Plum & Posner, 2007) or RLS 85.
Validation of the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) scale for conscious state in the emergency department: Comparison against the Glasgow Coma Scale.
In response to these limitations, alternative coma scales have been proposed, one of which is the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) scale (available as Supplemental Digital Content 1, Appendix II, at http:// links.lww.com/JNN/A65; Stead et al., 2009; Wijdicks, Bamlet, Maramattom, Manno, & McClelland, 2005; Wolf, Wijdicks, Bamlet, & McClelland, 2007).
FOUR = Full Outline of Unresponsiveness; GCS = Glasgow Coma Scale; GOS = Glasgow Outcome Scale.
GENERAL PURPOSE: To provide registered professional nurses with research data about the interrater reliability and predictive validity of the Full Outline of UnResponsiveness
(FOUR) Score Coma Scale.
