Objective:St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) is a typical, self-completed questionnaire for assessing the health condition in patients suffering from COPD.
Methodology: In the present study we evaluated the quality of life of patients using SGRQ on 126 patients, who were admitted in the medical intensive care unit of Ziauddin Medical University Hospital, Karachi.
Result:The minimum and maximum values for symptoms scores ranges from 14.37-65.71, activity scores ranges from 18.35-79.03, impact scores ranges from 10.6-74.54 and the total scores ranges from 16.99-70.01.
Conclusion:High values of scores indicated that COPD exacerbation produces a negative effect on quality of life of patients.
