RATIONALE: Measuring how often hot flashes occur in postmenopausal women may be done by using a skin conduction device or by using a diary.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is comparing a skin conduction device with a hot flash diary as a way of measuring hot flashes in postmenopausal women with hot flashes.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Hot Flashes||Other: physiologic testing|
- Correlate hot flash frequency, as measured by an ambulatory sternal skin conductance measuring and recording tool, with patient-recorded hot flash frequency using a hot flash diary in postmenopausal women with hot flashes.
- Determine the comfort, obtrusiveness, and feasibility of using the skin conductance recording tool for measuring hot flashes when worn daily for five weeks in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients wear an ambulatory sternal skin conductance hot flash device continuously for 5 weeks.
Patients complete hot flash diaries once daily for 5 weeks. Patients also complete the Comfort, Bother, and Weight Questionnaire at the end of week 5.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25 patients will be accrued for this study.
