Keeping this in consideration, how do you describe Loc?
Level of consciousness (LOC) is a measurement of a person's arousability and responsiveness to stimuli from the environment. A mildly depressed level of consciousness or alertness may be classed as lethargy; someone in this state can be aroused with little difficulty.
Likewise, how do you assess patient orientation? Orientation - Determine if the person is "awake, alert, and oriented, times three (to person, place, and time)." This is frequently abbreviated AAOx3 which also serves as a mnemonic. The assessment involves asking the patient to repeat his own full name, his present location, and today's date.
Keeping this in view, what does AVPU stand for?
alert, verbal, pain, unresponsive
