Background & Aims: To evaluate the scored patient-generated subjective global assessment (PG-SGA) as a nutrition assessment tool in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Methods: Seventy-two participants attending a pulmonary rehabilitation program (22M, 50F; mean age 66.6 ± 8.6 y). Nutritional status was assessed using the scored PG-SGA – global categorisation and score; fat free mass index.

Results: According to the subjective global assessment, 61 participants were well-nourished and 11 were moderately malnourished. Well-nourished participants had significantly lower PG-SGA scores (5.9 ± 3.0 vs 12.1 ± 5.4), higher % oxygen saturation (94.9 ± 2.8 vs 93.6 ± 2.4) and higher BMI (27.8 ± 6.1 vs 19.5 ± 3.2) than malnourished. There was a significant correlation between PG-SGA score and % oxygen saturation (r = −0.275, p = 0.026) and 6-min walking distance (r = −0.245, p = 0.044). The PG-SGA score had an 82% sensitivity and 79% specificity of predicting the global categorisation of nutritional status.

Conclusions: The scored PG-SGA identifies malnutrition in participants with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The nutritional status of subjects attending pulmonary rehabilitation programs could be assessed and tracked with the scored PG-SGA.
