In pain studies, the double stopwatch (DSW) technique is used sometimes to assess onset of analgesia from oral analgesics. DSW measures time to first pain relief, confirmed by pressing a second stopwatch when a significant relief is reached. The applicability of DSW in evaluating sore throat is limited. Thus, Shephard A and colleagues in a pilot study evaluated the DSW technique for providing accurate information on time to onset of analgesia using flurbiprofen 8.75 mg lozenge in comparison to ibuprofen caplets in patients with sore throat.
