MetadataShow full item record
OBJECTIVES: To assess SNOT-22 and its subscales in a non-rhinosinusitis UK-wide population. DESIGN: Self-reported questionnaire. SETTING: Based from 30 ENT departments around the UK. PARTICIPANTS: 250 Non-rhinosinusitis adults - no self-reported nasal problems in the past, no chronic conditions undergoing active treatment and no hospital admissions in the preceding 12 months. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: SNOT-22, SF-36. RESULTS: The mean SNOT-22 total score overall was 12.0. The mean was 10.2 for males with a median of 6.5 and a mean of 13.2 for females with a median of 9. Females scored significantly more highly than males on the sleep/fatigue and facial domains. CONCLUSIONS: Our data demonstrate differences in SNOT-22 amongst males and females. These data can be used in future studies for comparison with different disease populations with rhinosinusitis.
