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.
Coming soon - an upgrade of our one of a kind tool - a book which helps families deal with little ones' pain, and reminds others of the help words they need to make their pain care easier.
In our appreciation for your effort in reviewing our book on your purchase website, we offer to send a MPA Scale card
to you at the address you provide via firstname.lastname@example.org
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, Barnes & Noble, and Apple all carry our book. It is offered in print and as a kindle or ePub download. Put it on your iPad through iTunes so you are always ready to get the right help for pain. It’s just 4.3 Mb at $2.99.
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.
If you have chronic pain you have permission to download "Pain Rx Effect - which circle is it?" for your personal use.
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.

Our field trial of 10 families experiencing repeat hospitalizations, and 5 families experiencing ordinary health needs all reported less stress and faster solutions to pain events after reading My Pain Alert together.
Medical personnel depend on family and caregivers when someone can’t report their level of pain. Practice with this book puts parent and child or child and elder on the same page. Our scale words are quickly understood by patients and doctors.
Read their own words - how this book helps their children in our first blog: “Users Said.” We will add blogs about use with: stroke, autism, and alternative communication. Everyone needs help when in pain.

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 disposable toys to be available in hospital gift shops. Let your local shop manager know about My Pain Alert.
