ConceptCritical care pain observation tool (CPOT)
DescriptionA pain scale for uncommunicative and sedated intensive care unit (ICU) patients based on clinical observation.
UseThe scale consists of four behavioral parameters: facial expression, body movements, muscle tension and compliance with the ventilation for intubated patients or vocalization for extubated patients. Patient’s behavior for each of the parameters is scored between 0 and 2. Possible total score ranges from 0 (no pain) to 8 (maximum pain).
MisuseNot to be used outside the scope of uncommunicative or sedated intesive care patients.
PurposeA pain assessment scale for uncommunicative and sedated intensive care unit (ICU) patients based on clinical observation.
