Abstract

AIMS: This study aimed to assess the proposed outcome measures to use in the MACRO trial and identify any redundant outcome measures. METHODOLOGY: Seventy patients with CRS underwent these proposed outcome measures: •Objective: Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow (PNIF), Peak Expiratory Flow, Saccharin test •Subjective: Sniffin’ sticks test (TDI score), SNOT-22 Pearson’s correlations between SNOT-22 scores and outcome measurements were calculated. Interviews explored participants’ feedback. RESULTS: There was a significant negative correlation between SNOT-22 “Blockage” and PNIF. There was no significant correlation between SNOT-22 “Smell” rating and TDI scores; SNOT-22 “Runny” rating and Saccharin test. The interviews revealed the outcome measures were acceptable and valued by participants. CONCLUSION: The Sniffin’ Sticks test remains a valuable outcome measure. Although PNIF correlated with self-rating scores, it remains a simple cheap test to perform and valued by participants. The saccharin test was not valued by participants and has been removed from the trial measures.
