Poster sessions A100 Thorax 2012;67(Suppl 2):A1-A204 Results Mean (SD) age was 69.0 (9.0) years and most patients: were female (58.5%); had severe airflow obstruction (mean (SD) FEV 1 40.2 (17.3) % predicted); and were of normal weight (mean (SD) BMI 26.2 (7.0) kgm -2 ). 130 (71%) patients were readmitted during the year following discharge, with a median number of readmissions of 1 (IQR 0 to 3; range 0 to 15). The mortality rates at 3, 6 and 12 months following discharge were 6.6%, 10.4% and
more » ... .0% respectively. Self-reported measures of activity (SGRQ Activity and NEADL) were the only QoL indices significantly associated with both mortality and readmission. The relations of SGRQ Impacts and HADS Depression to mortality showed nonsignificant trends, but no other QoL domains were associated with readmission (table 1) . Conclusion Measures of self-reported activity at discharge were the most closely associated with both subsequent mortality and readmission and are likely to be the most useful of the QoL indices studied for predicting clinical outcome.
