The MacNew consists of 27 items which fall into three domains (a 13-item physical limitations domain scale, a 14-item emotional function domain scale, and a 13-item social function domain scale). There are 5 items that inquire about symptoms: angina/chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness, and aching legs. The time frame for the MacNew is the previous two weeks. The maximum possible score in any domain is 7 [high HRQL] and the minimum is 1 [poor HRQL]. Missing responses do not contribute to the score and item 27, 'sexual intercourse', may be excluded without altering the domain score as each domain score is calculated as the average of the responses in that domain.
