The "Borg CR10 Scale" is a general method for measuring most kinds of perceptions and experiences, including pain and also perceived exertion. It can be used to measure taste and smell, loudness and noise, brightness and other sensations, but also moods and emotions (e.g., discomfort and anxiety). This specific BORG scale measures breathlessness (dyspnea).
