Resumen

MARTINEZ, Ana Maribel et al. Habilidades en la realización y lectura de pruebas tuberculínicas. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2002, vol.18, n.3, pp.160-164. ISSN 0864-0319.

Although the persons in charge of administering and reading the tuberculin tests are the same, remarkable variability has been found in the final results. This study is aimed at measuring the consistency and variability of tuberculin test readings made by a group of nurses who receive training in the Cuban National Program of Tuberculosis Control. A training workshop was held for 5 nurses in which a PAHO model reader was used. Five hundred and sixty Mantoux tests were made in adults, workers from 3 centers, following the WHO standard techniques and the recommendations of the International Union against Tuberculosis and Respiratory Diseases. Readings were blind and ongoing adjustments were made to reduce variability. The highest correlation index was found in reader A (69.6 %) followed by reader C(67.3 %) and B (64.7 %). The greatest differences were found in high readings. In order to participate in these field readings, these readers should practice more until some deficiencies that are still present are solved.
