Mini Mental State Exam

Mini Mental State Exam

A mental status screening instrument which tests arithmetic, memory and orientation. A perfect score on the Mini-Mental is 30; a score < 17 corresponds to probable dementia. The test’s sensitivity may be lower with patients whose educational level is less than that of 9th grade; it may miss frontal lobe dementia.
