Abstract [en]

The aim: To examinate depressive symptoms among heart failure patients. Another aim was to examinate the differences in depressive symptoms between gender and between heart failure patients and the population. METHOD: The self-assassment formula MADRS was answered by twenty patients with heart failure at the University hospital in Uppsala. MAIN RESULT: Among the participants 31,3 % showed diffrent levels of depressive symptoms. Mild depression was more common in women. Moderate depression was exclusively shown among the female participants, while severe depression only was shown in one man. The result suggested that heart failure patients have more depressive symptoms than the population. CONCLUSION: A large proportion of the patients with heart failure showed signs of depressive symptoms. This was particulary shown in the women. The results suggest that heart failure patients exhibit more depressive symptoms than the population.
