Effects of Trauma Caused By Stress on Our Hearts

A study published by JAMA explains that psychological trauma increases the symptoms of heart disease and increases the risk of death from a heart attack or stroke among those with the condition. The data showed that the cardiovascular blockade, called myocardial ischemia, results in a more than doubled risk of death in people with heart disease, even if their heart disease is “stable” and well-controlled.

Participants in the study with myocardial ischemia caused by depression had a two and a half times higher risk of a person’s death from heart disease or stroke over the next five years than those without the condition. According to the researchers, all study participants had been diagnosed with heart disease and were considered stable due to treatment. “Depression caused by trauma is a powerful risk factor for serious side effects in people with heart disease,” co-author of the study Dr Viola Vaccarino told UPI in an email.

“Exposure to severe depression can lead to reduced cardiovascular blood flow in some people, and this can increase the risk of cardiovascular issues or death,” said Vaccarino, a professor of cardiovascular research at Emory University in Atlanta. More than 18 million people in the United States have heart disease or about 7% of the population. This statistic was estimated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It is prompted by a decrease in blood flow to the coronary arteries, forming a layer of coronary arteries. The CDC said that the condition kills about 400,000 people a year and is the leading cause of death nationally. More than half of the adults in America suffer from significant depression, estimated by the American Psychological Association.

In this study, Vaccarino and colleagues studied the effects of depression on 918 adult participants, aged 18 to 79, with stable heart disease. About 300 participants were hospitalized after a heart attack eight months before the start of the study. Researchers “lured” participants into depression in the study by asking them to perform a public speaking activity.

Participants were given two minutes to prepare the talk and three minutes to present it in front of at least four in the audience. The researchers said their stress levels were assessed based on blood pressure and heart rate, documented in all public speaking activities. In addition, the researchers measured participants’ “normal” stress, or cardiovascular stress caused by physical activity, using a standard heart rate test, which measures heart function during physical activity.

Among study participants, 147 patients, or 16%, had depression caused by myocardial ischemia. 12, or 8%, of participants who had depression – myocardial ischemia died of a heart-related cause within five years, the researchers said. In comparison, 4% of those who did not have myocardial ischemia caused by depression died of a heart-related cause within five years.

“This is not because these people were very sick or were prone to lowering blood flow and other forms of heart disease, such as physical stress using a treadmill,” Vaccarino said. “Those who developed ischemia with only depression were at greater risk of recurrence and death than those who developed ischemia with only normal depression tests,” he said.
