Vietnam is a developing country with tropical climate where infectious diseases, especially encephalitis are common. Every year, in National Hospital of Pediatrics from 200 to 300 encephalitis patients are hospitalized due to encephalitis. A rapid assessment of consciousness level in encephalitis is of importance in treatment and prognosis for patients. Two scales are usually used in assessment of consciousness level, The Alert Verbal Painful Unresponsiveness (AVPU) scale and the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS).
