Borg dyspnea scale

(borg)

A system used to document the severity of the patient's shortness of breath using numbers anchored with verbal descriptions, e.g., 10 = completely out of breath; 5 = somewhat breathless; 1 = breathing easily. The patient or athlete chooses the number that best corresponds to his or her current perceived respiratory effort.

Borg dyspnea scale is a sample topic from the Taber's Medical Dictionary.
