Key PointsQuestionWhat patient-reported outcome measures exist for studying patients with upper airway–related dyspnea? FindingsIn this systematic review, we identified 3 patient-reported outcome measures directly applicable to patients with upper airway–related dyspnea; one was developed de novo for this population, and 2 were adapted from existing pulmonary measures. Thematic deficiencies in current measures are lack of patient involvement in item development (content validity), plan for interpretation, and literacy level assessments. MeaningCare must be taken to understand the measurement characteristics and contextual relevance before applying these instruments for clinical, research, or quality initiatives.
