This chapter examines the findings of various research and studies concerning assessment of dyspnoea. It explains that assessments of the nature and severity of dyspnoea are essential in research studies involving evaluation of the breathless patient and that they provide useful information during the design of new therapeutic and pulmonary rehabilitation strategies. The chapter recommends direct and indirect dyspnoea assessment tools, including the Saint George's respiratory questionnaire (SGRQ) and the modified Borg or visual analogue scale.

Keywords:   dyspnoea, disease assessment, breathless patient, SGRQ, visual analogue, diagnosis
