We used standard statistical tests and criteria to evaluate the acceptability, reliability, and validity of the PEmb-QoL [6],[14],[16]. A pulmonary embolism (PE) is the sudden blockage of a blood vessel in the lungs by an embolus. Rochat, M., Méan, M., Limacher, A. et al. In a first step, two independent native French speakers, of whom one was a naïve translator without medical background, performed a forward translation from the original English version into French. The confirmation of PE was based on either a high-probability ventilation-perfusion lung scan or a positive computed tomography scan [12],[13]. To facilitate the comparison of PE-related quality of life across studies, we created an overall PEmb-QoL summary score using all items, except Q2 (“At what time of day are your lung symptoms most intense?”) and Q3 (“Compared to one year ago, how would you rate the condition of your lungs in general now?”), which were never scored. Epub 2018 Nov 21. Klok FA, van KralingenKW, van Dijk AP, et al. We assessed discriminant validity by examining whether PEmb-QoL scores were correlated with measures of unrelated constructs, i.e. Recently, a disease-specific instrument for assessing QoL after PE, called the Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life (PEmb-QoL), has been developed and validated. Conclusion: Finally, we were not able to assess responsiveness of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire, that is, its ability to detect a clinically meaningful change over time [8]. See this image and copyright information in PMC. Our hypothesis was that correlation with age, gender, and clinical characteristics would be weak. A similar approach was used in previous studies examining discriminant validity of a similarly structured quality of life questionnaire for DVT [6],[16]. The median PEmb-QoL dimension and overall summary scores are shown in Figure 1. Given that items 6, 8, 9 g, and 9i did not have the highest loadings in the original version of the PEmb-QoL either, a possibility would be to remove items 6, 8, 9 g, and 9i and to replace the original six dimensions by three dimensions in the French version of the questionnaire. We successfully validated the French version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire in patients with PE. The SF-36 questionnaire is a well validated generic quality of life measure consisting of 36 items grouped into eight dimensions (physical functioning, social functioning, physical role functioning, emotional role functioning, mental health, vitality, bodily pain, and general health). N Engl J Med. Thus, the French version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire met standard criteria of reliability and validity for use as a patient-reported measure of outcome in patients with PE, as previously shown for the Dutch version of the questionnaire. The PEmb-QoL questionnaire contains nine questions (40 items) covering six dimensions: frequency of complaints (Q1, 8 items), activities of daily living limitations (Q4, 13 items), work-related problems (Q5, 4 items), social limitations (Q6, 1 item), intensity of complaints (Q7 and Q8, 1 item each), and emotional complaints (Q9, 10 items). J Thromb Haemost 2007, 5(Suppl 1):310–317. While instruments to measure disease-specific quality of life exist for patients with DVT [6], the Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life (PEmb-QoL) questionnaire was only recently developed to specifically address health-related quality of life in patients having experienced PE [7],[8]. Most patients can maintain a good quality of life after treatment. doi: 10.1111/j.1538-7836.2007.02489.x. Health and Quality of Life Outcomes Med Care 1992, 30: 473–483. Objectives: To assess the long-term risk for adverse events after PE.. Methods: Consecutive patients diagnosed with PE between January 2001 and July 2007, and patients in whom PE was ruled out from a previous study were followed until July 2008 for the occurrence of … Validation and psychometric properties of the Maltese version of the Duke Anticoagulation Satisfaction Scale (DASS).

Life After a Pulmonary Embolism Having a pulmonary embolism (PE) can be a shocking and traumatic experience. The local ethics committee (Commission cantonale (VD) d’éthique de la recherche sur l’être humain) approved the study and all patients provided written consent. It is dangerous because almost a quarter of pulmonary embolism cases present as sudden death and up to a third of pulmonary embolism will ultimately be fatal. Radiology 1992, 185: 381–387. METHODS: QoL was assessed in 109 consecutive out-patients with a history of objectively confirmed acute PE (mean age 60.4 ± 15.0 years, 56 females), using the generic Short Form-36 (SF-36) and the disease specific Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life questionnaire (PEmb-QoL). Overall, 46 patients (45%) were aged ≥65 years, and 39% were women (Table 1). Methods: Patients with a prior history of pulmonary embolism (PE) were identified from the thrombosis registry at Østfold Hospital Trust, Fredrikstad, Norway. Eligible, consenting patients received a baseline PEmb-QoL and a French language version of the Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) questionnaire per mail [17]. Disease-specific quality of life questionnaires are necessary to better detect treatment effects and change over time in patients having the same disease.

Nunnally JC, Bernstein IH: Psychometric theory. Klok FA, Cohn DM, Middeldorp S, Scharloo M, Büller HR, van Kralingen KW, Kaptein AA, Huisman MV. Because no French version of this questionnaire is available, we performed a forward-backward translation from the English version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire into French according to previous published recommendations [11]. volume 12, Article number: 174 (2014) It is well known that measurement properties of QoL questionnaires adapted for a different population may differ from their original version due to differing translational, cultural, and methodological factors [11],[21],[24].

A PE occurs when a blood clot breaks off from a DVT and travels through the blood stream, traversing the right atrium and right ventricle, and lodging in the lung. Quality of life after pulmonary embolism: the development of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. We have defined “post-PE–related dyspnea” as new or worsening dyspnea, chronic exercise limitation, and impaired quality of life that persist for a minimum of 3 months after effective anticoagulation for acute PE, but without evidence of pulmonary vascular disease (i.e., … For those that survive the pulmonary embolism there is the possibility of decreased life expectancy and the development of complications that can impair quality of life. Multivariate Behav Res 1966, 1: 245–276. After rotation, the three factors accounted for 35%, 22%, and 19% of the total variance, respectively. Construct validity refers to the extent to which PEmb-QoL scores relate to other measures in a manner consistent with theoretically derived hypotheses [14]. In a first step, we transformed all item scores to a scale ranging from 0 to 100. 2014 Dec 3;12:174. doi: 10.1186/s12955-014-0174-4. J Thromb Haemost 2009, 7: 1044–1046. Our study has potential limitations. We also performed an exploratory factor analysis. 10.1067/mva.2003.152, Leplège A, Ecosse E, Verdier A, Perneger TV: The French SF-36 health survey: translation, cultural adaptation and preliminary psychometric evaluation. The effect of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) on patient quality of life (QoL) has been previously studied using both the generic Short Form 36 (SF-36) instrument as well as the more disease-specific pulmonary embolism quality of life (PEmb-QoL) instrument [1, 2].Klok et al. Purpose: The aim of the current study was to translate and test the psychometrical properties of the disease-specific pulmonary embolism quality-of-life questionnaire (PEmb-QoL). Criteria for acceptability included <15% floor and ceiling effects for dimensions and summary score [14]. Female sex and cardiopulmonary disease were associated with poorer disease-specific and generic quality of life; older age, with faster worsening of generic quality of life. Results: Question 4a (‘Do your lung symptoms now limit you in daily activities at work?’) was omitted from the factor analysis because almost half of patients in our sample did not work. Thromb Res. a systematic review on the quality of factor analysis of the SF-36. To our knowledge, studies evaluating the quality of life (QoL) in patients with a history of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) are not available, even though QoL is a key outcome component of medical care and a predictor of disease-specific prognosis. Recently, the Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life (PEmb-QoL) Questionnaire has been developed to address this gap.

Quality of life after pulmonary embolism: validation of the … Quality of life after pulmonary embolism: Prospective validation of the German version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire. Only one dimension, work related problems, had a substantial ceiling effect, with 18% of patients scoring the maximum score (lowest possible quality of life) in this dimension. PubMed  We are currently developing a disease-specific questionnaire to measure quality of life after pulmonary embolism (PE). Most people can walk and do light housework right away after a pulmonary embolism, but you may get tired easily or feel short of breath.

Background We aimed to evaluate health-related quality of life (QOL), dyspnea, and functional exercise capacity during the year following the diagnosis of a first episode of pulmonary embolism.  |  French-speaking consecutive adult patients with an acute, objectively confirmed PE admitted to the emergency department of a Swiss university hospital between 08/2009 and 09/2011 were recruited telephonically. Ware JE Jr, Kosinski M, Dewey JE: How to score - Version 2 of the SF-36 Health Survey (Standard and Acute Forms). N Engl J Med. Although clinical trials have demonstrated short-term benefit of catheter-based therapies to improve right ventricular (RV) dysfunction following acute pulmonary embolism (PE), 1–4 a paucity of data regarding long-term RV remodeling, functional status, and quality of life exists to guide integration of these revascularization strategies into evidence-based clinical practice. The PREFER in VTE registry, a prospective, observational study conducted in seven European countries, was used. The transformed PEmb-QoL dimension scores were depicted in a box plot as medians with interquartile range (IQR). MR, MM, AL, OH, DA participated in the conception of the study and its design, carried out the data analyses and drafting of the manuscript. All dimensions had floor effects, ranging from 13% for emotional complaints (Q9) to 66% for social limitations (Q6) (Table 2). Background: Even though quality of life (QoL) has become a key component of medical care, there is no instrument available that specifically measures QoL after pulmonary embolism (PE).

Median transformed scores were 9.4 (interquartile range [IQR] 3.1-21.9) for frequency of complaints (FC), 15.4 (IQR 3.8-41.7) for activities of daily living limitations (AL), 0.0 (IQR 0.0-50.0) for work-related problems (WP), 0.0 (IQR 0.0-25.0) for social limitations (SL), 20.0 (IQR 10.0-40.0) for intensity of complaints (IC), 14.0 (IQR 6.0-34.0) for emotional complaints (EC), and 14.7 (IQR 5.9-36.3) for the PEmb-QoL summary score (PEmb). Background Early discharge of patients with acute low-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) requires validation by prospective trials with clinical and quality of life outcomes. Background: Even though quality of life (QoL) has become a key component of medical care, there is no instrument available that specifically measures QoL after pulmonary embolism (PE). A similar observation had been made by Klok et al. Patients with a prior history of pulmonary embolism (PE) were identified from the thrombosis registry at Østfold Hospital Trust, Fredrikstad, Norway. Pulmonary embolism (PE) occurs in 600,000 to 1 million individuals each year, and has a 15% 1-year mortality, making it ... limitation, and impaired quality of life that persist for longer than 3 months after effective anticoagulation for acute PE. Background: © 2021 BioMed Central Ltd unless otherwise stated. INTRODUCTION: Although quality of life (QoL) is recognized as an important indicator of the course of a disease, it has rarely been addressed in studies evaluating the outcome of care for patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). A PE can become life-threatening. Ceiling effects were ≤2% for all dimensions except for work-related problems (18%). The aim of the study was to assess the 12-month illness burden in terms of health-related quality of life (HrQoL) and mortality, in relation to differences in patient characteristics. Acute venous thromboembolism (VTE), defined as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism (PE), is common and has a high impact on morbidity, mortality, and costs of care [1],[2]. Although quality of life (QoL) is recognized as an important indicator of the course of a disease, it has rarely been addressed in studies evaluating the outcome of care for … Epub 2018 Apr 21. 2004;164:17–26. doi: 10.1001/archinte.164.1.17.

By using this website, you agree to our Background. Would you like email updates of new search results? When correlating the PEmb-QoL and the SF-36 dimensions, we found a particularly strong correlation between activities of daily living limitations and physical functioning, and between work-related problems and physical role functioning. BACKGROUND: Even though quality of life (QoL) has become a key component of medical care, there is no instrument available that specifically measures QoL after pulmonary embolism (PE). Most patients can maintain a good quality of life after treatment. The correlation between intensity of complaints and bodily pain was clinically also plausible. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12955-014-0174-4, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12955-014-0174-4. The French version of the PEmb-QoL showed good reliability (internal consistency, item-total and inter-item correlations), reproducibility (test-retest reliability), and validity (convergent, discriminant) in French-speaking patients with PE. We telephonically invited all screened patients who survived the PE episode for study participation. Mathilde Rochat. Thus, we could not entirely exclude the possibility that elderly and sicker patients were underrepresented in our study. In addition to dealing with what can be a very painful condition, you may also feel scared about how it could affect your health and worried that it could happen again. Validating the Chinese version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire: A measure for quality of life assessment after pulmonary embolism. We also performed an exploratory factor analysis. Limited information on the long-term course of PE patients is available so far. Background: Even though quality of life (QoL) has become a key component of medical care, there is no instrument available that specifically measures QoL after pulmonary embolism (PE). The high score correlations between the PEmb-QoL and the SF-36 and the low correlation between PEmb-QoL scores and patient characteristics supported convergent and discriminant validity, respectively. Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a multifactorial disorder as a complication of many diseases which remains an urgent problem of medicine. Terms and Conditions, 2020 Jan-Feb;18(1):107-119. doi: 10.1080/15402002.2018.1546178. Notably, items 6 (Interference with normal social activities), 8 (Intensity of breathlessness), and 9 g-i (Burden to family and friends, Afraid to exert yourself, Limited in taking a trip) were not taken into account in these three dimensions because these did not contribute significantly to either of them. An item was considered to load on a given factor if the loading was >0.3 for this factor. In a second step, two naïve English speakers performed a backward translation into English. Life After a Pulmonary Embolism Having a pulmonary embolism (PE) can be a shocking and traumatic experience. [8] and might be explained by the fact that these dimensions focus on the extent of limitations when performing work or physical exercises. Overall, 41 participants (40%) answered ‘I do not work’ for the question Q4a. Patients were asked to complete and return both questionnaires using a pre-stamped return envelope. -, Spencer FA, Gore JM, Lessard D, Douketis JD, Emery C, Goldberg RJ. Epub 2015 Apr 9.

To our knowledge, studies evaluating the quality of life (QoL) in patients with a history of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) are not available, even though QoL is a key outcome component of medical care and a predictor of disease-specific prognosis. [8] already observed such floor and ceiling effects in some of the PEmb-QoL dimensions, we presumed that the floor and ceiling effects were not specifically related to the French version of the PEmb-QoL questionnaire. French-speaking consecutive adult patients with an acute, objectively confirmed PE admitted to the emergency department of a Swiss university hospital between 08/2009 and 09/2011 were recruited telephonically. Recently, the Pulmonary Embolism Quality of Life (PEmb-QoL) Questionnaire has been developed to address this gap. While the importance of patients’ quality of life (QoL) in chronic cardiac or pulmonary disease is uncontroversial, the burden of an acute pulmonary embolism … 10.1148/radiology.185.2.1410342, Terwee CB, Bot SD, de Boer MR, van der Windt DA, Knol DL, Dekker J, Bouter LM, de Vet HC: Quality criteria were proposed for measurement properties of health status questionnaires.

Three items were not clearly assignable to a meaningful dimension in the French version of the PEmb-QoL: item 6 (“During the past four weeks, to what extend have your lung symptoms interfered with your normal social activities with family, friends, neighbors, or groups?”), item 8 (“How much breathlessness have you experienced in the past four weeks?”) and item 9 g-i (“How much of the time during the past four weeks (g) did you feel that you were a burden to your family and friends, (h) were you afraid to exert yourself, (i) did you feel limited in taking a trip?”). Article  Study of indices of changes of physical abilities, psychic state and social adaptation of an individual defined as quality of life are important in treatment of patients with PE. Given that Klok et al. This overall score met standard criteria of acceptability, reliability, reproducibility, and validity for use as a summary patient-reported measure of outcome in patients with acute PE.
