Abstract
As it is known in recent years the problem of depression in the elderly is growing, on the one hand the increase in the elderly population and on the other the appearance and / or persistence of chronic conditions often disabling that interfere with mood such as COPD (ill, preventable and treatable characterized by a chronic obstruction to the air flow in the intrathoracic airways. the presence of an FEV1 / FVC ratio of less than 0.70, demonstrated by spirometry performed after administration of a bronchodilator, is a necessary criterion to confirm the clinical diagnosis of the disease). The aim of this study was to verify a possible correlation between low mood and COPD in ambulatory elderly subjects. Methods: From October 2016 to April 2017 we submitted the Geriatric Depression Scale - J.Yesavage (one of the most popular scales for evaluation of depressive symptoms in the elderly, the instrument consists of 30 items which excludes the detection of somatic symptoms and psychotic symptoms, the answers are reciprocating (yes / no), the score ranges from 0 to 30 with a threshold level to 11 place, beyond which are clinically relevant depressive symptoms) to 118 elderly (67M-51F) subjects with age average of 76 related to the clinic of Pneumology simultaneously undergo spirometry. Results: Our data in line with other studies show no correlation between depression severity and severity of obstructive, other parameters considered such as sex, BMI and FVC showed no correlations.
