Resumen

MARTINEZ HERNANDEZ, Aramís et al. Application of Borga’s fatigue index in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.3, pp.394-401. ISSN 1684-1824.

Background: it is recognized that COPD is a multidimensional disease affecting several organs; when they fail, they cause hypoxia and fatigue. A subjective indicator for detecting fatigue is Borga’s fatigue index. Aim: Identify the behaviour of the index of fatigue of Borg. Materials and Methods: a prospective, observational study, of correlational research was carried out in a group of patients with confirmed diagnostic of obstructive pulmonary disease, to whom the PM6M was applied, including the Borga’s fatigue index before and after the walk of that trial. Outcomes: the average of the basal Borga’s fatigue index was 0.94 and of 1.75 at the end, with a difference between them of 0.81. The correlation between the final index and oxygen saturation was 0 (p=0,989), and between the final Borga’s fatigue index and the walked distance was -0,36 (p=0,002). Conclusions: the average of the final Borga’s fatigue index was higher than the basal one, with a significant difference between both media.  The correlation between the final Borga’s fatigue index and the oxygen saturation was null. The walked distance and the final Borga’s fatigue index showed a proportionally inverse correlation.
