Objectives: After being a solid method of measuring consciousness for decades,the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was offered to be replaced with a better option: The Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) score, which several studies later confirmed to be superior due to its independence from verbal response and ability to consider brain stem reflexes. In this study, we decided to compare the two scales in the prognosis of stroke, which has never been conducted before.
