Abstract

Physical deconditioning syndrome (PDS) is characterized by the reduction in both physical and mental performance that occurs rapidly when the individual stops participating in regular activities of daily living due to illness, and is usually associated with prolonged periods of immobilization. The primer presents a proposal for evaluation and intervention for patients hospitalized with PDS with the aim of providing a comprehensive tool on the complexity and approach of the syndrome and establishing an intervention program based on objective evaluation. The text offers a detailed analysis of the physiological effects of prolonged rest on the human body systems and its impact on functionality and quality of life; it employs evaluation categories based on the classification established by the American Physical Therapy Associa-tion (apta) and, finally, it proposes a physiotherapeutic intervention program according to the severity levels of the PDS.
