Abstract

We previously developed the preliminary version of the Patient-Reported Apnea Questionnaire (PRAQ), a questionnaire measuring health-related quality of life in patients with (suspected) obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This questionnaire was developed for clinical practice, where it can potentially serve two goals: use on an individual patient level to improve patient care, and use on an aggregate level to measure outcomes for quality improvement at a sleep center. In this study we aim to finalize the PRAQ, make a subselection of items and domains specifically for outcome measurement, and assess the validity, reliability and responsiveness of the PRAQ. Patients with suspected OSA were included and asked to complete the PRAQ and additional questionnaires one or more times. The collected data was used to perform the final item selection for clinical practice and for outcome measurement, create the domains for outcome measurement, and assess the measurement properties internal consistency, test-retest reliability, convergent validity and responsiveness. 180 patients were included in the study. The final version of the PRAQ for use in clinical practice contains 40 items and 10 domains. A subselection of 33 items in 5 domains was selected for optimal outcome measurement with the PRAQ. The results for the outcome measurement domains were: Cronbach's alpha 0.88-0.95, ICC 0.81-0.88, and > 75% of hypotheses correct for convergent validity and responsiveness. The PRAQ shows good measurement properties in patients with (suspected) OSA.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 August 2018.
All research outputs
#11,778,557
of 15,442,255 outputs
Outputs from Health and Quality of Life Outcomes
#1,044
of 1,660 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#191,463
of 278,434 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Health and Quality of Life Outcomes
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,442,255 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,660 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 278,434 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
