Comparison of the ICF Core Set for Cardiopulmonary Conditions in the Acute Hospital Setting among Different Types of Transplant Patients

To compare the functioning profiles of patients receiving different types of organ transplants using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health. The patients (n=102) were enrolled between days 5 and 10 after discharge following receipt of an organ transplant, and assessed for sociodemographic variables, the Functional Independence Measure and Barthel Index, and the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health core set for cardiopulmonary conditions in the acute hospital, augmented with three additional categories. Analysis was conducted by grouping the patients as follows: (1) kidney transplants; (2) all other kinds of transplants. Functional Independence Measure/Barthel Index scores were significantly higher in group 1 compared with group 2. Prevalences of 30% or greater for any impairment were noted for seven b factors, one s factor, and one d factor in group 1, whereas the corresponding numbers for group 2 were 14, 2, and 8, respectively. When prevalences of 30% or greater were calculated for severe or total impairment for all factors, there were none for group 1, but six factors for group 2. For the six factors, the prevalence difference between the groups was significant in five after a full Bonferroni correction (P less than 0.000002). The e factors with the highest barriers were e110 (products or substances for personal consumption, 36%) and e120 (products and technology for personal use in daily living, 42%) in group 2 (both significant with P less than 0.000001 when compared with the respective prevalences in group 1). Although exercise seems to be the most needed rehabilitation function for kidney transplant patients, other transplant patients will require considerably more rehabilitation intervention.
