This chapter examines the assessment of pain associated with respiratory diseases in research and clinical practice. It suggests that a structural approach to taking a pain history is useful in assessing causes and the impact of pain on the patient. There are several multidimensional symptom scales or quality of life (QoL) measures that can be used in research studies of pain, but currently the best specific instrument for monitoring pain alone is the Brief Pain Inventory (BPI).

Keywords:   pain assessment, respiratory diseases, pain history, symptom scales, QoL measures, BPI
