Pulmonary Reviews;Oct2007, Vol. 12 Issue 10, p8
The article highlights the revised version of the "St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire" (SGRQ) designed specifically for COPD patients in Great Britain. The authors of the report claims that COPD-specific version provides an accurate and valid assessment of respiratory function. The report's authors also said that the revised SGRQ, though shorter than the original, contains the best of the original items, no longer specifies a recall period and produces scores equivalent to the existing instrument.
