Resumen

AntecedentesEl Índice Torácico (TI) es una herramienta útil para evaluar la movilidad costal como componente de la mecánica respiratoria en adultos con asma. Sin embargo, en una revisión de la literatura, se encontraron pocos estudios que reportaran la psicometría de esta prueba. El objetivo de este estudio es evaluar la reproducibilidad y validez de la IT en adultos con asma.
MétodosSe realizó un estudio transversal para evaluar las pruebas diagnósticas. Las mediciones fueron realizadas aleatoriamente por dos evaluadores independientes. Las variables medidas incluyeron la movilidad torácica (IT y análisis fotogramétrico), variables sociodemográficas y antropométricas, y otras variables relacionadas con la enfermedad. La fiabilidad de TI incluyó la determinación del acuerdo intra e interevaluador y la reproducibilidad utilizando el método de los límites de acuerdo Bland y Altman y el Coeficiente de Correlación Interclase (ICC). La validez convergente se estableció utilizando el coeficiente de correlación de Pearson. El nivel de significación fue p < 0,05.
ResultadosVeintiséis adultos con asma estable participaron en este estudio. Los límites del acuerdo intra e interevaluador se consideraron aceptables y buenos, respectivamente, con una media de diferencias cercana a cero en ambos casos. La reproducibilidad del intra-evaluador fue entre pobre y aceptable (TI entre 0,57 y 0,93), mientras que la reproducibilidad del interevaluador fue entre aceptable y buena (TI entre 0,62 y 0,86). La validez convergente entre la IT y el análisis fotogramétrico fue entre moderada y alta (r entre 0,55 y 0,73).4.

ConclusionesLa TI es una medida fiable y válida que puede utilizarse para evaluar la movilidad costal en adultos con asma. En un entorno clínico, puede contribuir a una medición no sesgada, y en un entorno de investigación, es útil para documentar los resultados de las intervenciones, reduciendo la probabilidad de que los resultados se vean afectados por cualquier variabilidad en la medición.
