Abstract: INTRODUCTION: We aimed to evaluate the frequency and associated factors of acute respiratory infection and death among home care patients in Sobradinho/DF, Brazil. METHODS: Data were obtained from patients’ medical records. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were performed. Odds ratio and 95% confidence interval were estimated. RESULTS: Factors associated with respiratory infection were ages <40 and >80 years and accommodation. Female sex was a protective factor. Age >30 years and dependency for daily activities were associated with death. CONCLUSIONS: These factors can improve clinical results in this specific home care and open new opportunities and questions for future research.
