ACUTE ASTHMA QUALITY OF LIFE QUESTIONNAIRE (Acute AQLQ)
When patients have an acute severe exacerbation of their asthma, not only are they troubled by their symptoms, the experience can also be emotionally distressing. The AQLQ, the AQLQ(S) and the MiniAQLQ focus on the things that are troublesome to asthma patients during their day-to-day lives in the community and they ask patients to recall their experiences during the previous weeks. Therefore, they are not suitable for capturing the rapidly changing experiences that occur during acute severe asthma. We have modified the AQLQ to focus on the problems that are distressing to patients when they experience acute severe asthma that requires treatment in hospital and which can be expected to respond within hours to therapy.
The Acute AQLQ has been fully validated and like the other questionnaires has strong measurement properties.
