Pain Management Index

Reference work entry


The Pain Management Index (PMI) is explained as a way to quantify how well pain is managed with pharmacological intervention (0 = no analgesia, 1 = non-opioid analgesia 2 = a mild opioid, 3 = a strong opioid). PMI is calculated by subtracting the pain level reported by the patient from the type of analgesic treatment, the score ranging from - 3 (non-analgesia therapy patient with severe pain) to + 3 (morphine therapy patients with no pain).
