Pediatric GCS

Pediatric Glasgow Coma Scale (PGCS) for Health Care Providers



  • You can run the Shortcut by saying this phrase to Siri “Pediatric GCS” or add the Shortcut to home screen and run it from there.
  • After receiving the PGCS score the Shortcut will ask you if you want to save the result to Notes with a Timestamp so you can get the result when ever you want.
  • The Pediatric Glasgow Coma Scale (PGCS): is scored between 3 and 15, with 3 being the worst and 15 the best.
  • It is composed of 3 parameters:
    • Best eye response (E)
    • Best verbal response (V)
    • Best motor response (M)
  • The components of the PGCS should be recorded individually; for example, E2V3M4 results in a PGCS of 9. A score of 13 or higher correlates with mild brain injury, a score of 9 to 12 correlates with moderate injury, and a score of 8 or less represents severe brain injury.
  • The Pediatric Glasgow Coma Scale (PGCS) was validated in children 2 years of age or younger.
