While often used to compare levels of pain between patients, these methods of scoring pain are probably of most use when measuring changes within each patient. There is a good correlation between the VAS, VNRS, and VDS (ANZCA and FPM, 2010). There are no other cues marked on the line. The patient is asked to mark a point on the line that best represents their pain. The distance from “no pain” to the patient’s mark is then measured in millimeters—this is the VAS score (0–100).
