McGill Pain Questionnaire

A two-part instrument developed at McGill University by Melzack and Torgerson in 1971, which is used to evaluate subjective components of pain.

McGill Pain Questionnaire Parts
• Part 1—One simple question: the patient categorises the pain on a scale of 0 (no pain) to 5 (excruciating pain).
• Part 2—Contains 77 pain descriptors, e.g., cramping, burning, which are grouped into 20 categories; the descriptors in each category are ranked numerically according to pain severity.

MPQ

An instrument used to quantify the perceived location, type, and magnitude of pain. A typical McGill Pain Questionnaire consists of three parts: location of the source of pain as depicted by marking one or more X's on a diagram; the intensity of pain as indicated by a visual analog scale; and the magnitude of pain by selecting words from a pain rating index.

Correlation analysis among different aspects of MPQ and PDQ-39 was carried out in patients with high and low SCOPA-AUT scores.
Pain was assessed using the MPQ, which has shown good validity and reliability in DOMS-related pain [9] after translation and across cultures.
Both the MPQ and the BPI were used to assess pain because they evaluate different attributes.
MPQ Although the MPQ scores overall were low (i.e., low perceptions of pain in the heat tests), both Acceptance (M= 16.17) and Distraction (M=14.70) groups reported perceptions of greater pain overall than Placebo W=11.12).
The researchers then evaluated the relationship between the subjective response to amphetamine and MPQ negative emotionality on the measures of substance use.

A estimacao dos parametros dos modelos nao lineares: Modelo de plato de resposta polinomial quadratico (MPQ), Modelo de plato de resposta nao linear exponencial (MNLE) e Modelo de plato de resposta logaritmico (MLOG), considerando os dados simulados e reais, foi feita pelo metodo de minimos quadrados, sendo que a solucao do sistema de equacoes normais nao lineares foi obtida por meio do processo iterativo de Gauss-Newton (SOUZA, 1998).

This review revealed a high degree of reliability, internal consistency, construct validity and a moderate correlation between NDI, VAS and MPQ. She also found the NDI did not assess emotional function, but it had more correlation with SF-36 scores than with cervical ROM.
