Reliability of Robotic Telemedicine for Assessing Critically Ill Patients with the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness Score and Glasgow Coma Scale

Document Type



Telemedicine is increasingly utilized in the evaluation of critically ill patients, including those with decreased level of consciousness (LOC) or coma. Improving access to providers with neurologic expertise affords earlier triage and directed patient management. However, objective data regarding the reliability of using standardized coma scales, traditionally employed at the bedside for remote assessment, are largely lacking.
