OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to quantify the levels of anxiety experienced by Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients just before transfer to the ward and then twice after transfer to the ward in order to test the hypothesis that anxiety levels would change over the three data collection periods. DESIGN A prospective, repeated measure cohort study.(More)
AIMS Symptoms of anxiety and depression often co-exist with cardiovascular disease, yet little is known about the prospective risk for heart failure (HF) in people with symptoms of depression and anxiety. We aimed to study these prospective associations using self-reported symptoms of anxiety, depression, and mixed symptoms of anxiety and depression (MSAD)(More)
Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients are often not able to respond to long self-report instruments, therefore, in order to assess anxiety accurately, a short and easy to use measure is required. The Faces Anxiety Scale (FAS) developed by McKinley et al. [McKinley S, Coote K, Stein-Parbury J. Development and testing of a faces scale for the assessment of(More)
AIMS The nature of the association of depression and anxiety with risk for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains unclear. We aimed to study the prospective association of single and recurrent self-reported symptoms of anxiety and depression with a risk of AMI in a large Norwegian population based cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS In the second wave of the(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and sepsis are now frequently identified by observations of vital signs and detection of organ failure during triage in the emergency room. However, there is less focus on the effect on patient outcome with better observation and treatment at the ward level. METHODS This was a before-and-after(More)
OBJECTIVE Symptoms of anxiety and depression often co-exist with cardiovascular disease (CVD), yet little is known about the association with left ventricular (LV) subclinical dysfunction. We aimed to study the cross-sectional associations of previous, current and repeated depression or anxiety symptoms, with sensitive indices of LV systolic and diastolic(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to study whether patient-reported outcomes, measured by quality of life (QoL) and functional class, are sensitive to pleural effusion (PLE) in patients with heart failure (HF), and to study changes in QoL and functional class during follow-up of PLE. METHODS A cohort of 62 patients from an outpatient HF clinic was included. The amount(More)
The multiple-dose, dose-response curve of MK-927 was studied in a five-center, double-masked, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel study of 2%, 1%, and 0.5% MK-927 in 76 patients with bilateral primary open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension and intraocular pressure greater than 24 mm Hg following washout of ocular hypotensive medications.
