Describing pain help needs is a medical event preparation skill everyone should have. A lot of pain happens at home. It is wise to work on this skill before loved ones need it desperately. This training tool is for family based pain care. Children near one year old have been able to sign “pain” and point where.
Available now- an upgrade of our one of a kind tool - a book which helps families deal with little ones' pain. Age neutral, our book reminds people of the help words they need to make their pain care easier. Check KOBO and Apple Books.
In our appreciation for your effort in reviewing our book helping communicate about pain (something we all avoid), we will mail you an easy to sanitize MPA Scale +card free of charge. This is a world wide limited time offer. Contact us by this email or regular mail with the location of your review and your postal address.
This one of a kind book was created by three Moms for people who need pain management but are: too young, too memory challenged, overwhelmed by being asked to rate their pain on a 10 level scale, or confused by emojis. Commonly used pain scales require remembering a previous pain experience and comparing it. Those scales were tested on children without separating non-readers. Our scale is simpler and faster to use for everyone.
Our book is the ONLY book in print helping you teach your loved one the words to tell the amount of pain they experience. Amazon, KOBO, and Apple all carry our book. It is offered in print and as a fixed layout ePub download. Put it on your iPad through iTunes so you are always prepared to get the right help for pain. KOBO ebooks has the android version. It’s just 6.1 Mb at $3.99.
Families using My Pain Alert(TM) Scale have saved time and effort getting a child or family limited communicator’s pain under control. Little children were able to direct their parents, so the best action could be done immediately. Older children came out of surgery requesting the exact pain management they needed, resulting in a shorter than previous hospital stay.
Four remedy-based, five level pain description cards printed on bacteria and acid resistant plastic with cues and prompts to make getting the right pain care less stressful. Suitable for all ages. Contact us via email@example.com with requests for other Items.

Older people can benefit from My Pain Alert. Our MPAS+ (My Pain Alert Scale Plus) scale is easiest to use and is ADA friendly.
Are there other tools for parents to teach their child how to manage pain?
No. We took on this creative challenge because it was going to be years before our little guy had the working memory and experience base to use a typical pain scale to get his needs met.
Can I buy it in a store?
You can order it through any bookstore. We would like our purse size revision and MPAS+ cards to be available in hospital gift shops. Let your local shop manager know about My Pain Alert.

Read their own words - how this book helps their children in our first blog: “Users Said.” We add blogs periodically about use with different patient groups: stroke, autism, and alternative communication. Our latest "If you are sure" is directed at ordinary people. Everyone needs help when in pain.
