PURPOSE: To determine association of severity of COPD by with COPD Assessment Test (CAT) scoring and St. George’s Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) .
METHODS: The study was a cross-sectional, 254 stable COPD patient were included in the study. CAT and SGRQ questionnaires administered as random basis. Data was described as mean ±sd or frequency (no.) and percent distribution. Kappa test was used to determine significance of agreement of cut-off points of scoring system with severity of COPD as diagnosed by spirometry.
RESULTS: The results obtained showed significant impairment in health status that was related to COPD severity. The COPD severity increases the CAT and SGRQ scores also increases significantly ( CAT (p=0), SGRQ (p=0.00)) . However, there was no significant agreement of cut off scores in CAT with COPD severity. (Kappa test : 0.17 p=0.009).
CONCLUSIONS: CAT showed significant association in health related impact to COPD severity with good correlation to SGRQ scoring system but with no significant agreement of cut off scores in CAT with COPD severity.
CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: CAT could be an alternative to the traditional and longer SGRQ questionnaire , when an evaluation of the health status is needed but time limited.
