New guidelines for measuring pain in patients with rheumatic conditions recommend that clinicians use the Numeric Rating Scale for Pain (NRS Pain) for estimating patients' pain intensity and the Short Form-36 Bodily Pain Scale (SF-36 BPS) for evaluating pain in the context of overall health status, says an article by Medscape Medical News based on a review published online last month in Arthritis Care & Research. The review, part of the journal's special issue titled "Patient Outcomes in Rheumatology, 2011," includes the Visual Analog Scale for Pain (VAS Pain), NRS Pain, McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ), Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire (SF-MPQ), Chronic Pain Grade Scale (CPGS), SF-36 BPS, and Measure of Intermittent and Constant Osteoarthritis Pain (ICOAP).

[more ▼]. This article aims to establish a 'profile' of patients presenting with chronic pain in the algology service of CHU of Liège to identify possible relationships between diagnoses, psychological states and modes of pain management. Between 2005 and 2010 we monitored 1832 individual chronic pain patients who attended our pain clinic at the University Hospital of Liège. This paper presents the characteristics of these patients and their test scores before the treatment to assess their health status in a biopsychosocial perspective. Demographic and lifestyle as well as occupational factors, pain disability index, pain belief assessment, hospital ...

Sixty subjects with diagnostic of facet joint syndrome will be enrolled in the study.. They were randomized into experimental and control groups. The experimental group will be submitted to intra-articular infiltration of six facet joints. The control group will be submitted to intramuscular injection of six lumbar paravertebral points. After the randomization, all subjects will be assessed by an investigator blinded to the groups. The assessment will be taken just before the interventions (T0) and them 7 , 30 , 90 and 180 days after the interventions. The following assessment instruments will be used: pain visual analogical scale (VAS) (0-10cm), pain visual analogical scale during extension of the spine (VAS E) (0-10cm), Likert scale for improving (0-5), percentage scale of subjective improving perception(0-100%), Rolland-Morris questionnaire (0-24), short health survey questionnaire (SF36), accountability of medications taken for back pain: analgesics and ...

The primary objective of this study is to compare the effectiveness of pain control between intrathecal opioid delivery and standard analgesia delivery method in patients with locally advanced unresectable or metastatic pancreatic cancer. The primary end point is the number of subjects on each arm showing a decrease in the change in VAS self-assessment pain intensity rating (VAS pain rating) at one month from initial treatment with respect to the baseline pain score. The change is defined as (the Pain Score at one month of the treatment - the Pain Score at baseline). Serial pain scores will be collected at all assessment time points. Min: zero cm. Max 10cm. A higher value means worse pain. Subjects on each arm will report pain on a 10 cm Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) pain rating scale, by making a mark on the 10cm horizontal line with a pen ...

Brief Pain Inventory-Short Form (BPI-SF) measures severity of pain, impact of pain on daily function, locations of pain, pain medications, and amount of pain relief in the past 24 hours or the past week. The BPI-SF includes 4 items measuring the intensity of pain which make up the pain intensity sub scales, assessed using 11 point numerical rating scales from '0'= no pain to '10' = pain as bad as you can imagine; 7 items that assess how much pain has interfered with 7 daily activities which make up the pain interference sub scale, assessed on a scale of 0, 'Does not interfere' to 10, 'completely interferes.' This sub scale is typically scored as the mean of the 7 interference items; An additional item on the extent of pain relief ...

Methods often used for the valuation of health states are the time trade-off TTO and the visual analog scale VAS. The VAS is easier than the TTO and can be self-administered ; however it usually leads to lower scores. In the literature a power transformation of group mean VAS scores to TTO scores has been proposed. We were able to replicate...

*  Multi-modal pain measurements in infants - Department of Paediatrics
A non-invasive integrated method was developed to measure neural and behavioural responses to peripheral sensory and noxious stimulation in human infants. The introduction of a novel event-detection interface allows synchronous recording of: (i) muscle and central nervous system activity with surface electromyography (EMG), scalp electroencephalography (EEG) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS); (ii) behavioural responses with video-recording and (iii) autonomic responses (heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate and cardiovascular activity) with electrocardiography (ECG) and pulse oximetry. The system can detect noxious heel lance and touch stimuli with precision (33 μs and 624 μs respectively) and accuracy (523 μs and 256 μs) and has 100% sensitivity and specificity for both types of stimulation. Its ability to detect response latencies accurately was demonstrated by a shift in latency of the vertex potential of 20.7 ± 15.7 ms (n = 6 infants), following touch of the heel and of the

Pain, stiffness, and function in subjects with osteoarthritis were measured using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities (WOMAC) Index, which is a 24-item questionnaire. The total (composite) WOMAC score is calculated as the average of the mean visual analogue scale (VAS) scores from the questions in the pain, stiffness, and function subscales. Subjects mark the VAS, which is a horizontal line 100 mm in length, with a single vertical line to indicate their response to each of the questions, with 0 mm representing 'No Pain, Stiffness, or Difficulty' and 100 mm representing 'Extreme Pain, Stiffness, and Difficulty'.. The total (composite) WOMAC score difference was calculated as the total (composite) WOMAC score assessed at Weeks 2, 6, and 12 minus the total (composite) WOMAC score assessed at baseline. ...

*  Clinical Validation of Medasense Pain Response Index (PRI) - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Pain is an unpleasant sensation, ranging from slight discomfort to intense suffering. Since pain is a subjective phenomenon, it has frequently defied objective, quantitative measurements. Today, in order to measure pain, subjective uni-dimensional scales are used to quantify pain. One of the most common scale used to rate a patient's pain intensity is the Numeric Pain Scale (NPS), usually scored from 0 to 100. Hitherto, those scales are based on the subjective evaluation of pain by the patient.. During anesthesia the patient cannot communicate and therefore the verbal or other report is impossible. As a consequence, due to misrepresentation of the existence or extent of pain, care providers may fail to estimate the correct measure of pain and give too much or too little medication, leading to possible complications and adverse reactions. A ...

Patients will be recruited by a member of the research team when the patient is admitted to labor or delivery and when they are in the post-natal floor.. Patients will be divided into two groups initially depending on mode of delivery, vaginal vs. cesarean. The vaginal delivery group will be randomized into three groups. One group will be told that we are investigating the effect of oxytocin on pain intensity, the second group will be told that it reduces pain intensity, the third group will be told that it increases pain intensity.. The cesarean group are not going to be randomized, they will be told we are investigating the effect of oxytocin on pain intensity.. Demographic and obstetric will be collected by patient questioning as well as from the medical record on Day 1 post delivery. Analgesia data from the medical record will also be collected on days 1 and 2 post-delivery.. The primary outcome measure will be change in ...

Currently used pain assessment tools may be underestimating the pain response in infants according to a study published in the open access journal PLoS Medicine this week. Dr. Slater and colleagues (University College London, UK) studied the association between cortical pain responses in young infants and currently used pain assessment tools which are based on behavioral and physiological measures, such as change in facial expression.
