[Disability and quality of life of stroke survivors: evaluation nine months after discharge].

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION AND AIM:After acute episode, a great number of individuals who survive a stroke have impairments that impede them to carry out with autonomy a set of basic activities of daily life and instrumental activities of daily life. The clinical evaluation health self perception is a useful element on patient's recovering process. The purpose of this study was to evaluate post-stroke functional health status and quality of life. PATIENTS AND METHODS:After identification of a cohort of admitted patients at a general hospital, those were contacted by phone nine months after discharge. The collected tool sent by mail included the COOP WONCA charts, Frenchay Activities Index, Barthel Index, Rankin scale and a set of socio-demographic variables. RESULTS:Participants survival rate was of 81%. The physical functioning and the capacity to perform daily activities were the most affected ones, impairing the patients of making a set of basic and instrumental daily activities. The emotional state and health self-perception are also correlated to disability. CONCLUSIONS:The results suggest a significative percentage of stroke survivors maintaining a moderate or severe disability (47.8%) requiring the presence of caregiver helping self-care. Collected data enhances that stroke survivors have severe physical dysfunction associated to emotional and psychological disturbances.
