Description:

The Edinburgh Coma Scales were developed in Japan to evaluate patients with impaired consciousness. An initial coma scale developed in 1973  reportedly has been used by the Department of Surgical Neurology at the University of Edinburgh (caption to Table 1, page 412,Sigiura et al, 1983). This was modified in 1978 (Edinburgh-2 Coma Scale) to improve its usefulness.  The Edinburgh-2 scale reportedly correlates well with the Glasgow Coma Scale and may complement it for better accuracy.
