MANEIRO HIGUERA, Francisco  y  GONZALEZ LORENZO, Fernando. New Evaluating Methods of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: adaptation for Damage and Incapacity Evaluation. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2015, vol.61, n.240, pp.367-377. ISSN 1989-7790.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0465-546X2015000300006.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the most common chronic respiratory disease and the one that most often can lead to disability. Spirometry is the traditional way to assess the severity of the disease. But its clinical presentation is not homogeneous and it is known that there is no good correlation between spirometry results and the clinical situation of the patient. In recent years, evaluating methods for the disease have been developed by combining certain parameters, i.e. making a multidimensional assessment. This way, the prognosis and severity of the disease is much better predicted. Physicians like us, who do assessment of disability, must know and manage these tools to make our accurate assessments. Two of these tools are given, the derivative of the GOLD Initiative and the one developed in Spain, the GesEPOC. This application and its use is further explained in the evaluation of the disability.

Palabras clave : COPD; GOLD; GesEPOC; BODE.
