Abstract:

objective: to develop regression equations for six-minute walk distance (6mwd) in healthy adults (20-80 years of age) in brazil. methods: we included 132 volunteers (66 males) without respiratory disease, cardiac disease, or comorbidities that affect ambulation. the volunteers completed three six-minute walk tests. prior to and at the end of each test, we obtained spo2 and maximal hr, as well as the borg scale scores for sensation of dyspnea and lower limb fatigue. the data included in the final analysis were derived from the test with the greatest 6mwd. results: the mean 6mwd values were 566 ± 87 m and 538 ± 95 m in males and females, respectively (p = 0.08). the 6mwd was greater in taller individuals and decreased in parallel with increases in age or body index mass (bmi). the best adjusted model was the quadratic model. we derived the following equation (valid for both genders): 6mwd = 511 + stature2 (cm) × 0.0066 - age2 × 0.030 - bmi2 × 0.068. this equation explained 55% of the variance in 6mwd. conclusions: reference values explaining a high proportion of the variance were derived by a quadratic regression model in healthy adults (of a wide range of ages) in brazil.
