KCCQ, SAQ, and PAQ

We are the sole source for the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ), Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ), and the Peripheral Artery Questionnaire (PAQ). Learn more about these instruments and how to license them for your projects.


The Seattle Angina Questionnaire (SAQ)

The Seattle Angina Questionnaire is the most sensitive, specific, and responsive health-related quality of life instrument for coronary artery disease.



The Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ)

The Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire is the most sensitive, specific, and responsive health-related quality of life measure for heart failure.



The Peripheral Artery Questionnaire (PAQ)

The Peripheral Artery Questionnaire is the most sensitive, specific, and responsive health-related quality of life measure for peripheral artery disease.



Graphical Tracking of Patient Outcomes With the KCCQ, SAQ, and PAQ Calculators

Monitoring serial changes in health status is one of the principal clinical uses of the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire, the Seattle Angina Questionnaire, and the Peripheral Artery Questionnaire. Such changes can be difficult to perceive in tables of numeric data, but they become obvious when graphed. To facilitate review of individual patient trends at the point of care, we have added graphing capabilities to the our calculation tools — the KCCQ Calculator, the SAQ Calculator, and the PAQ Calculator. Here is information about how this works.



Short Form Versions: KCCQ-12 and SAQ-7

The KCCQ-12 reduces the KCCQ’s 23 items to 12, while the SAQ-7 reduces the SAQ’s 19 items to 7. Both shortened versions significantly increase the speed and ease of questionnaire administration while preserving the sensitivity, specificity, and reliability of the original instruments.
