Developed in 1970
The Borg Dyspnea Scale is not a separate scale. See the Borg CR Scale®. The magnitude of most kinds of experiences can be determined with one of the two CR scales, e.g. for lung patients not only normal breathlessness and its sometimes drastic change to severe difficulties breathing, “dyspnea”, but also how it relates to other important symptoms, such as leg fatigue and anxiety during an ergometer test.
The Borg Angina Scale is not a separate scale. See the Borg CR Scale®. Compare also the Borg Dyspnea Scale.
The Borg RPE Scale®. There are three different “Borg Scales” for determination of ratings (R) of perceived (P) exertion (E). The first and most common scale is the 15-graded RPE-scale (Borg, 1970, 1985. See Borg 1998). However, the Borg CR Scales® are now also used to determine the magnitude of “RPE” (See Borg CR Scale®).
The Borg Pain Scale is not a separate scale. See the Borg CR Scale®.
