NRS pain ruler

What is NRS pain ruler

The Numeric Rating Scale is a self report assessment scale for patients who are able to use numbers to rate the intensity of their pain. The numerical rating scale, like all self-report pain scales, however has limitations. Scores are subject to many social, cognitive, and contextual influences (von Baeyer, 2009). When self-report scores are in doubt, it is wise to complement them with observational intensity scores and to take the context of the child’s (or patient's) ratings into account (von Baeyer, 2009).

  • Self-reporting scale for adults, children > 9 years old
  • Easy and fast assessment
  • Can be used in all patient care settings
  • No specific training required
