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?
P.S. For all you readers, use the comment section to suggest other scales. KK
How is that?
