The Duke Activity Status Index is a self-administered questionnaire that measures a patient's functional capacity. It can be used to get a rough estimate of a patient's peak oxygen uptake.
The instrument consists of 12 questions.
The responses are yes or no. Each "yes: response is assigned a weighted point score (from 1.75 to 8.00)
Duke activity status index =
= SUM(values for all 12 questions)
• maximum value 58.2
• minimum value 0
estimated peak oxygen uptake in mL/min =
= (0.43 * (duke activity status index)) + 9.6
