Abstract: The determination of functional consequences (dysfunction) and their impact on daily life (incapacitation) is central to the evaluation of patients with occupational respiratory diseases. The present review addresses the fundamentals underlying the instruments used to determine the degree of dysfunction, including clinical aspects, as well as those related to pulmonary function and, in some circumstances, exercise tolerance. In particular, a multifactorial system of classifying the degree of dysfunction is presented, with the objective of informing decisions related to the awarding of retirement benefits in Brazil.
