Validation of the Rhinitis Control Scoring System (RCSS)

2014-08-27 03:19:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Many patients suffering from allergic rhinitis do not recognize or perceive their symptoms. Instruments have been developed to assess quality of life in rhinitis, asthma or both, but there is a need to develop validated tools or methods to assess rhinitis control among rhinitis and/or asthmatic patients. The aim of this study is to assess the discriminative and evaluative properties of the RCSS in asthmatic patients with allergic rhinitis.

Description

Allergic asthmatic subjects showing seasonal rhinitis symptoms will be recruited. The discriminative (internal consistency, cross sectional construct validity and reliability) and evaluative (responsiveness and longitudinal construct validity) properties of the RCSS will be evaluated as well as the relationship between rhinitis control and asthma control. RCSS will be completed at various time points during the seasonal allergic period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asthma attacks caused, triggered, or exacerbated by OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Drugs that are used to treat asthma.

A beta-adrenergic agonist used in the treatment of asthma and bronchospasms.

Adrenergic beta-2 agonist used as bronchodilator for emphysema, bronchitis and asthma.
