Introduction: Pain is subjective in nature. It can express different manners by the patient (or) Individuals. The role of diagnostic pain procedures is considered very important. It can be classified into acute pain (i.e; short lived pain) and chronic pain (i.e; pain that lasts for months). It shows effect on socio economic status of the patients. Poor pain management is likely to persist until pain management practices became consistent with guidelines developed from the best available scientific evidence. In case of rational pain management needs pain assessment. So pain assessment plays a major role in rationalize pain management. Method: This study was prospective observational multicenter study. Results: The study was conducted from August 2018 to Dec 2019 in various hospitals in and around Guntur district.

At the 4-h VAS evaluated that, the moderate pain was found to be 39.25% of total population and Severe pain as 19.89%. The study results were monitored and continued for 24 hours. Only 5.5% of patients were consumed strong opioids during the first 24 h as postoperative analgesics. Conclusion: Pain assessment plays a major role in the management of chronic and acute pain.
