Abstract

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.
