Superficial Pain: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Diabetic Neuropathy:
Superficial pain sensation was conducted using a sterile Neurotip (Owen Mumford, Oxford, U.K.) applied four times in an arrhythmic manner to the two sites described for the SWME. The superficial pain threshold was defined as the total number of times the application of the pain sensation was not perceived, with scores varying from 0 to 8.
