The objective of this review was to investigate any newly developed PROMs for global airway disease and to give an overview of the most commonly used PROMs in the management of global airway disease. Recent findings The Standard Tests for Asthma, Allergic Rhinitis and Rhinosinusitis (STARR-15) is a recently developed PROM aimed to raise clinicians’ awareness of coexisting type-2 inflammation disease. Strengths of the STARR-15 is that is quick and symptom-centered, i.e. items are not specifically aimed at a disease the patients might not be aware they have. The STARR-15 has, however, not yet been validated, so details of responsiveness and reproducibility are yet to be determined. Summary PROMs are a quick and cheap way to assess patient perspectives in global airway disease, and can play an important role in unveiling otherwise overlooked co-existing double disease.
