Neuro Scores is a continually growing source of the tools used to evaluate critically ill patients. This app is intended for the experienced practitioner. From simple tools like the Hunt and Hess Scale to the more complex Rancho Score the tools, the scales have been edited to be used by the experienced physician, nurse, or medical resident. If there is a tool (score) that you want added – send it along and I will add it to Neuro Scores.
Disclaimer: I am no lawyer so the bottom line is: This is not a diagnostic tool. There is enough information about each score to remind you how to use that score, but the app is not a learning tool. If you have never heard of the Glasgow Coma Scale, you are not ready to download this app. This app helps you quickly collect and store a variety of scores, it can act as a cheat sheet, it can help remind you about scores, but it ain’t gonna replace good clinical judgment!
