Living with Pulmonary Hypertension Questionnaire (LPHQ)

The Living with Pulmonary Hypertension Questionnaire (LPHQ) is a reliable and validated measure of the adverse effects of pulmonary hypertension on a patient’s life.
Technology No. 2020-185

Patient Reported Outcome Questionnaire for Pulmonary Hypertension

The questionnaire is comprised of 21 important physical, emotional and socioeconomic ways pulmonary hypertension can adversely affect a patient’s life. After receiving brief standardized instructions, the patient marks a 0 (zero) to 5 scale to indicate how much each itemized adverse effect of pulmonary hypertension has prevented the patient from living as he or she wanted to live during the past 4 weeks. The questionnaire is simply scored by summation of all 21 responses. This patient-reported outcome can be used to determine whether a treatment for pulmonary hypertension is effective for improving patients’ quality of life by reducing the adverse impact of pulmonary hypertension.
