PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Error of pain measurement

Iben Ax��n   (2011-07-06 16:46)  Karolinska Institutet email

In the methods section, the pain measurement is described as a Numeric Rating Scale, which is correct. However, in the result section as well as in Table 1, pain is described as a measurement with the Visual Analogue Scale, which is incorrect. This fact has no bearing on the figures (means and SD) presented, but they should, of course, read "NRS" even in the result and in the Table. We apologize for this error.
