i have a question regarding speking, for pain we have to ask for pain level in 0 to 10 scale,for altered sleep how can we ask?i mean,is there any thing like pain scale? or can we ask them to describe the sleep pattern? A
Good question. There are many ways to use scales. The most basic is the pain scale:
On a scale of zero to ten, where ten is the most pain, how would you rate your pain?
Scales can be used in a variety of ways, but very few people do. After five years of teaching CELBANPrep only one person, last month, used a scale to measure something other than pain. I realized then, that a scale can be used for a variety of things: hunger, thirst, depression, itchiness. For sleeping? How about:
On a scale of zero to ten, where ten is the best sleep, how would you rate how well you sleep each night?
On a scale of zero to ten, where ten is the most restless sleep, how restless are you at night?
