The presented study is the first in which the correlation between the Turkish versions of the VHI-10 and V-RQOL is examined.
In our study, we determined that the Turkish versions of VHI-10 and V-RQOL, the two most frequently used questionnaires for assessing how an individual perceives the emotional, physical and psychological aspects of their voice problem, are highly correlated.
Next, the descriptive statistical analysis (absolute and relative frequency) of the variables collected in the Data Collection Form, the WHOQOL-bref scores and the V-RQOL in each of the domains was used.
The overall V-RQOL score was 92.5 ([+ or -] 8.4), indicating a low voice influence on teachers' quality of life.
None of the studies as of yet, however, has examined the perceived quality of life assessed by means of the V-RQOL
for subjects with occupational voice disorders confirmed by a complex examination.
We also compared voice-related quality-of-life (V-RQOL
) scores, and we looked for associations between each of the three vocal symptoms and the prevalence of mouth breathing, the level of snoring loudness, and the number of snores per minute.
Regarding the analysis performed exclusively to EG, the t-student Test was used to compare the physical and socio-emotional domains means of V-RQOL
, and the Pearson correlation coefficient was used to correlate the scores of these domains.
The value of the total V-RQOL
score was calculated according to the following formula [Total = 100 - (raw score - 10/ 40) x 100].
Preliminary data showed that the two therapy groups presented significant improvement in V-RQOL
, scores, however, only the PhoRTE demonstrated a significant reduction in the perception of speech effort.
