What is difference between UPDRS and MDS-UPDRS?

The MDS‐UPDRS specifically covers a greater number of PD manifestations, including nonmotor symptoms (NMS); better discriminates slight/mild manifestations of PD compared with the original UPDRS; resolves ambiguities and gives clear instructions for both raters and patients; and assesses all items in a uniform way.

What does the MDS-UPDRS measure?

The Movement Disorder Society-Sponsored Revision of the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) is a comprehensive 50 question assessment of both motor and non-motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s.

How long does MDS-UPDRS take?

Estimated Time to Complete: Under 30 minutes for full assessment (time for patient-reported outcomes may vary).

How is MDS-UPDRS total score calculated?

Predicted MDS-UPDRS III total scores were calculated by using previously published conversion formulas (Hoehn and Yahr Stage I–II: 1.2× + 2.3; Stage III: 1.2× + 1.0; Stage IV–V: 1.1× + 7.5).

What is a normal UPDRS score?

Results A minimal CID was 2.3 to 2.7 points on the UPDRS motor score and 4.1 to 4.5 on the UPDRS total score. A moderate CID was 4.5 to 6.7 points on the UPDRS motor score and 8.5 to 10.3 on the UPDRS total score. A large CID was 10.7 to 10.8 points on the UPDRS motor score and 16.4 to 17.8 on the UPDRS total score.

What is the maximum score on MDS UPDRS?

The maximum MDS‐UPDRS score is higher, given the additional items and scores for each body area, with a maximum score of 272.

What is a good UPDRS score?

1 = Slight and infrequently present. 2 = Moderate; bothersome to patient. 3 = Severe; interferes with many activities. 4 = Marked; interferes with most activities.

What is the VA disability rating for Parkinson’s disease?

VA rates Parkinson’s Disease under 38 CFR § 4.124a – Schedule of Ratings, Neurological Conditions, and Convulsive Disorders, Diagnostic Code (DC) 8004. This diagnostic code assigns an automatic minimum 30 percent rating for the condition, but it does not take into account the symptoms associated with it.

What is the PDQ 39?

The Parkinson’s Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) assesses how often people with Parkinson’s experience difficulties across 8 dimensions of daily living including relationships, social situations and communication.

What does my UPDRS score mean?

Each parkinsonian sign or symptom is rated on a 5-point Likert-type scale (ranging from 0 to 4), with higher scores indicating more severe impairment. The maximum total UPDRS score is 199, indicating the worst possible disability from PD.

What is UPDRS motor score?

The Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) is the most widely applied rating instrument for Parkinson disease (PD) [1–2]. The Total UPDRS score includes 31 items contributing to three subscales: (I) Mentation, Behavior, and Mood; (II) Activities of Daily Living; and (III) Motor Examination [2].
