How to Use
The CNS-LS is a short 7-item, self-administered questionnaire, designed to be completed by the patient, that provides a quantitative measure of the perceived frequency of PBA episodes. The CNS-LS can help accurately diagnose PBA.
How to Score
Add the values for each of the 7 items to get the total score. A CNS-LS score of 13 or higher may suggest PBA.
