The only identifiable scale initially developed and validated as an instrument for the assessment of pediatric ARTIs has been the Canadian acute respiratory illness and flu scale (CARIFS).3 The CARIFS was successfully used in clinical trials conducted in native English-speaking countries.4,5 Meanwhile, foreign language versions of the CARIFS Cited by: 2.

Although acute respiratory infection (ARI) is the most frequent clinical syndrome in childhood, there is no validated measure of its severity. Therefore a parental questionnaire was developed: the Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness Flu Scale (CARIFS).Cited by:   Validated clinical scales, such as the Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness and Flu Scale (CARIFS), have not been used to differentiate influenza (FLU) from other respiratory viruses.

The only identifiable scale initially developed and validated as an instrument for the assessment of pediatric ARTIs has been the Canadian acute respiratory illness and flu scale (CARIFS). The Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness and Flu Scale (CARIFS) scores decreased from a mean (SD) score on Day 1 of () to () on Cited by: 1.

Therefore a parental questionnaire was developed: the Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness Flu Scale (CARIFS). A process of item generation, item reduction, and scale construction resulted in a scale composed of 18 items covering three domains; symptoms (e.g., cough); function (e.g., play), and parental impact (e.g., clinginess).

BACKGROUND: Validated clinical scales, such as the Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness and Flu Scale (CARIFS), have not been used to differentiate influenza (FLU) from other respiratory viruses. METHODS: Secondary analysis of a prospective cohort presenting to the emergency department (ED) with an influenza-like infection from to The Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness and Flu Scale (CARIFS) was designed to assess the severity of acute respiratory infections in children.

It is a parent-proxy questionnaire measuring 3 conceptual dimensions of illness: symptoms/physiological, functional compromise and impact of illness. 1. Introduction. The Canadian Acute Respiratory Illness and Flu Scale (CARIFS) has been developed as a parentally assessed “disease severity measure appropriate for acute respiratory infection, including influenza, in children”.Although childhood respiratory infection is the most common single reason for consulting a doctor, CARIFS is one of very few available instruments for measuring.

Caregivers completed a daily diary of symptoms for up to 14 days which incorporated the 18 item Canadian acute respiratory illness and flu scale.

3 This scale scores from 0 to 54, and higher scores indicate sicker children. Four of the items on the scale relate directly to the upper respiratory tract—for example, nasal congestion and sore. Although acute respiratory infection (ARI) is the most frequent clinical syndrome in childhood, there is no validated measure of its severity.

During one-month follow-up, we recorded incidence, duration, and clinical course of ARTI using Canadian acute respiratory illness and flu scale (CARIFS). Results. At baseline groups I and II were comparable on age, number of social contacts, history of attending daycare/school, and history of previous ARTI.

85% (n=41) of children in the group I. We also used the Canadian Acute Respiratory Infection Flu Scale, a quantitative scoring sheet for measuring the severity and duration of upper respiratory symptoms, to establish the SD of the treatment effect to allow sample-size calculations for future clinical trials.
