[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] The purpose of this exploratory, descriptive study were to characterize the sample according to the variables: age, gender, marital status, education level, level of spinal cord injury, etiology, reason for hospitalization  and  dependence  prior  to  admission;  and to identify functional, motor and pain disabilities of patients diagnosed with spinal cord compression syndrome. Four instruments were applied: identification form, Barthel Index, motor rating and Verbal Numeric Pain Scale in 31 patients with spinal cord compression syndrome. There was a prevalence of 32% of patients aged 51-60 years, 58% were men, 64.5% were married, 38.7% have primary education I, 26% had cervical injuries and 26% lumbar, were the main cause disc herniation (45%), the main reason for admission was pain in 20 cases, 34.5% were classified as independent aid prior to admission. 52% of patients had functional disability, 96.7% motor disability and 29% disability painful. As a conclusion, that cord compression is a disabling syndrome that requires a rehabilitative nursing care.
