Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS)

For infants less than one year of age, the Neonatal Infant Pain Scale (NIPS) uses observational and physiologic parameters to detect pain (Table 2).  A score of 0-2 indicates no pain present.  A score of 3-4 indicates mild to moderate pain; non-pharmacologic techniques may be tried first in this group.  A score of 5 or greater indicates severe pain; pharmacologic intervention is indicated (Lawrence 1993).
