grade 0
LOA Arousal Technique: speak to the pt. in normal tone/voice. Pt. opens their eyes, looks at you, and responds fully and appropriately to stimuli. What level is this?
Alert
LOA Arousal Technique: speak to the pt. in loud voice. What level is this?
Lethargy--pt. appears drowsy but opens the eyes and looks at you, respond to questions, and then falls asleep.
LOA Arousal Technique: shake the patient gently as if awakening a sleeper
Obtundation--pt. opens the eyes, looks at you but responds slowly and is somewhat confused. Alertness and interest in the environment are decreased.
LOA Arousal Technique: Apply painful stimulus. For example, pinch the tendon, rub the sternum, or roll a pencil across a nail bed.
Stupor--pt arouses from sleep only after painful stimuli. Verbal responses are slow or even absent. The patient lapses into an unresponsive state when the stimulus ceases. There is minimal awareness of self or the environment
LOA Arousal Technique: Apply repeated painful stimuli
Coma--comatose pt. remains unarousable with eyes closed. There is no evident response to inner need or external stimuli
