Further studies employing specific scales to each of these CF domains to confirm such evidence are suggested.

Method Cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study. Validity of the center for epidemiological studies: Functional capacity of elderly persons treated at the HUJBB geriatric outpatient clinic by frailty group.

January 08, ; Revised: Among the phenotype criteria, slowness of gait is the factor that most affects the physical component of QOL, while fatigue most influences the emotional component. None had behavioral alterations. Nevertheless, it is important to note that advanced activities of daily living AADLswhich were not analyzed in this study, are impaired earliest in life, followed by instrumental activities IADL and, lastly, basic activities of daily living BADL 26 and that the FIM scale used here places greater emphasis on BADL and some IADLs, which in this case are related to getting around and climbing stairs.

On the other hand, the lowest score was associated with social participationsimilar to the findings of Torres et al. The assessments were made by a single trained researcher based on the parameters determined by literature.

Prevalence and factors associated with frailty in an older population from the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: The mean age of the three groups was similar. Number of comorbidities reported by elderly persons treated at the geriatric outpatient clinic of HUJBB, classified according to degree of frailty. The FR group had on average 3.

Conclusion Muscle weakness and physical inactivity were most striking in the development of frailty, which was associated with worse QOL and FC, despite most seniors be independent. This data reinforces the results of the present study and emphasizes the importance of assessing all elderly persons, even those who are most active in their ouc lives, to ensure the early detection or even prevention of the phenomenon of frailty.

Results The mean age was The clinical classification of assessed patients was rehabilitation in Modificaciones en el aparato cardiovascular by Sandra Braun Jones 1 edition published in in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide. Compared to other Brazilian studies, the degree of frailty was relatively high among the elderly population studied.

Instead, the focus was aimed at the reports of the elderly persons themselves in relation to their health and well-being. Persons aged 60 years or more were surveyed about the number of falls in the preceding six months, the characteristics and consequences of each falls. Intimacy revealed a good ability to deal with feelings of love and companionship and good family relationships, 29 which could be related to the degree of interaction of elderly persons who have an average of four people in their homes.

It is believed that in this way the data becomes more reliable. A frail elderly individual is someone who exhibits three or more such components, while individuals with one or two components are classified as pre-frail, and have twice the risk of becoming frail.


Geriatric assessment showed that, sincethe proportion of elders with greater functional derangement increased from 18 to 28 per cent, and the proportion of those with mental disturbances from 4 to 12 per cent, specially among those over 75 years old. Although literature has identified a relationship between a history of falls and frailty, 33 this was not observed in this sample, as there was no difference between the F, PF and NF groups.

The international physical activity questionnaire: However, unintentional weight loss was less frequent.

Furthermore, it is an event whose effects extend beyond the elderly themselves, placing a burden on relatives and caregivers, and resulting in high health service costs. Daily life activities showed that help was required for sphincter control in 46 per cent of patients, for feeding in 44 per cent and for mobilization in 64 per cent 28 per cent of patients required help from two or more people.

The functional and cognitive status was normal in 73 and While this finding agreed with the aforementioned studies, 1931 there was no difference between FR and NF and between PF and NF individuals, suggesting that even elderly individuals not at manuwl of frailty may have a negative opinion of their health, or in other words, in this sample perception of health was not decisive for frailty and vice versa.

Thus, the most important findings of the present study relate to the need to recognize the determinants of frailty, even those that are subclinical, in order to detect the emergence of this syndrome as early as possible, since the biological criteria discussed herein are reversible.
