美国医疗机构评审联合委员会JCAHO (the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations)最早宣布疼痛应作为一个重要的体征。美国疼痛学会(American Pain Society)随后提出“疼痛:第五生命体征”,目的是要提高医护人员对疼痛治疗的认识。退伍军人卫生管理局VHA (Veterans Health Administration )和世界卫生组织等机构也十分重视疼痛的控制。虽然仍有人质疑它的客观与可*性,但现在疼痛已被普遍地列为体温、呼吸、脉搏、血压四大生命体征之外的第五大体征(the Fifth Vital Sign)。

1.疼痛部位(The location of the pain):准确地指出疼痛在哪里。
head(头)(forehead 前额,脑门);eyes(眼);ears(耳);nose(鼻);mouth(口);throat(喉);
cheek(脸颊);neck(颈, 脖子);chest(胸);sternum(胸骨);ribs(肋骨);breast(乳房);
shoulder(肩);back(背)(upper back 背的上部;lower back 背的下部);spine(脊柱);
elbow(肘);armpit(腋下,腋窝);arm(手臂)(upper arm 上臂;lower arm/forearm 前臂 );wrist(手腕,腕关节);
hand(手);palm(手掌);thumb(大拇指);fingers(手指)(index finger 食指;middle finger 中指;ring finger 无名指;pinky finger=little finger 小指);
stomach(胃);abdomen(腹部);belly button or umbilicus(肚脐);liver area(肝区);flank(侧胁部)(肾区kidney area);kidney(肾 );urinary tract(尿路);
waist(腰);hip(髋骨); pelvis (骨盆);groin (腹股沟); perineum(会阴);vagina(阴道);penis(阴茎);scrotum(阴囊); buttocks(臀,或俗称bottom);anus(肛门);rectum(直肠);hemorrhoid(痔疮  -它不是人的生理部位,是病灶,但常引起疼痛与不适,列在这里可以向医生详细描述);
thigh(大腿);knee(膝, 膝盖);leg(腿);calf(腓,小腿肚);shank(shin)(胫,小腿前部);ankle(踝,踝关节) ;feet(脚)(left foot 左脚; right foot 右脚);sole(脚掌,脚底);heel(足跟;踵部,脚后跟);arch(脚弓); toes(脚趾)(big toe 大脚趾,index toe 第二脚趾,middle toe 中脚趾,fouth toe 第四脚趾,pinky toe=little toe 小脚趾)。

2.疼痛的规律:持续时间(duration)和发生的频繁(frequency )(如 continuous 连续的,intermittent 间断的,all the time 一直不停地痛)及规律性(如餐后痛,餐前痛,晨起痛等)。
3.疼痛的强度(intensity):分轻微(mild,), 中等程度(moderate),很痛(intense),剧痛(severe)等。
1971年加拿大神经生理学家麦尔扎克(Ronald Melzack)和另外一名研究者Torgerson 首先建立了一种说明疼痛性质强度的评价方法,被称为麦-吉痛觉调查表(McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ))。它共分20组问题,每一组里有多个相近的词语来表达疼痛,但只需选一个对你的疼痛最贴切的词来计分。由于调查项目繁多,表中词类比较抽象,有时病人难以理解准确的意涵,虽然它曾被认为是可*且有效的评痛方法,但却被简便易行的视觉模拟评分法(VAS =Visual analog scale)和现今改进的数字疼痛量表(简称痛尺NRS=Numeric Rating Scale)所取代了。

1) the Wong-Baker FACES scale (for children):让孩子指着脸的图形来判断孩子的疼痛强度。笑脸表示无痛,哭的脸表示极痛。
2) Pain scale for adult(成年人用的痛尺):
4.疼痛的性质(Quality of the pain ):
