ARCHETYPE Pain scale (VAS) (openEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.pain_scale.v1)

ARCHETYPE IDopenEHR-EHR-OBSERVATION.pain_scale.v1
ConceptPain scale (VAS)
DescriptionThe pain scale VAS is a visual analog scale for the subjective measurement of the sensation intensity of pain.
UseThis archetype is to be used to represent the subjective pain perception of a patient. The Visual Analog Scale is often used in pain research and pain therapy. It is usually a line whose endpoints represent extreme states, such as "no pain" and "unbearable pain." The respondent marks his or her subjective sensation by drawing a vertical line on the scale. The indicated value is then quantified by the respondent as a percentage or by means of a defined scale, usually from 0 to 10. However, the respondent does not see the discrete scales.
MisuseThe archetype must not be used on children under 12 years of age.
PurposeTo represent the subjective assessment of pain intensity using an analog scale (VAS).
