Table 1 Left-hand columns – frequencies of main diagnoses in 854 patients with persistent CUE (463 males, 391 females; median age 65; median GCS 5), ordered by classes I-III. Second column of numbers – numbers of patients diagnosed with accessory pathologies besides their main diagnosis. Center – coincidences between main diagnoses (rows) and accessory coma-explaining pathologies detected during ED management (columns), given in absolute numbers. (As we gave priority to diagnoses from class I by definition, only pathologies from classes II and III appear in columns)
