The St George's Respiratory Questionnaire is a standardized self-completed questionnaire for measuring impaired health and perceived well-being ('quality of life') in airways disease. It has been designed to allow comparative measurements of health between patient populations and quantify changes in health following therapy. The background and rationale for its development are discussed together with an analysis of its performance.
