ConceptComfort behaviour scale
DescriptionA numerical scale for pain and/or sedation assessment in pediatric ICU patients.
UseUsed for pain and/or sedation assessment in pediatric ICU patients.
MisuseNot to be used for pain and/or sedation assessment in adult populations.
PurposeThe Comfort Behavioural scale is a modification of the original Comfort scale (1992), used for pain assesment in children in ICU and, complementarily, for sedation assessment in nonsurgical pediatric ICU patients.
