Abstract

Chronic breathlessness [1] causes immense suffering in cardiorespiratory diseases. The functional impact of activity-related breathlessness, measured on the modified Medical Research (mMRC) scale [2], is highly prognostic, informs disease evaluation and management including in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [3], and is widely used for determining eligibility in clinical trials.
