Scale of pain: The pain scale is divided into 11 levels (level 0 to level 10). You must enter level 0 when you have no pain and 10 if you feel an extremely strong pain. The scale used in this device has been defined by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Pain registration: You can insert the record level of pain on a voluntary basis or in response to an alarm set by your doctor.
Registration through an alarm: When an alarm occurs, the message PLEASE MAKE REGISTRATION, accompanied by an audible alarm is displayed. By reading this post you must make a record of the level of pain you feel at this moment. If it takes longer than 30 seconds to make the alarm registration is lost.
