Sensory Bedside Testing and Quantitative Sensory Testing in Developing Countries

Immense curiosity in quantitative sensory testing (QST) in the past two decades in the developed countries leads to its comprehensive development with the expectation to be a more precise tool for the clinical and research purposes on pain management. To make QST more useful and comparable, one should get reliable QST normative and patient data which have been successfully collected under standardized QST according to DFNS protocol. Establishment of standardized QST in developing countries is challenging due to lack of knowledge, standardized equipment, and experience. The application of well-developed bedside-QST-batteries for clinical use may be more practicable, less cost and less time-consuming while providing acceptable data of QST parameters compared to standardized QST and for stratification of QST clusters.
