21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe the trend of the post-traumatic stress disorder, functional  status, and depression among first time acute myocardial infraction patients in the north part of Taiwan. Methods: A prospective and repeated measurement design was used. Data were collected twice, within one week and two months after the diagnosis. Three validated scales including UCLA PTSD Index, Seattle Angina Questionnaire and Beck Depression Inventory-Short Form. Results: Sixty-eight patients enrolled in this study. Statistic methods including descriptive analysis, paired-sample t-test, Pearson's product-moment correlation. The results showed at recovery phase, six cases (9%) met the PTSD diagnosis. Thirty-four cases (50%) had mild PTSD reaction. The SAQ scores of physical limitation, angina stability, and angina frequency were significantly higher than the early stage (t=-6.07, p<0.001; t=-5.84, p<0.001; t=-4.35, p<0.001). Twenty-nine patients showed depression in which three cases were found at moderate depression level. Stepwise regression for the physical limitations, angina frequency, and depression at the early phase could predicted the PTSD at two month's later was up to 32% total. The physical limitation contributed for the 19% PTSD variance (R2=.19, beta=-.38, p<0.001) , the angina frequency was for additional 9%, while depression elevated another 4% (beta=.21). Conclusion: The outcome of this study suggest that the following assessment and more attention to those whom had lower physical limitation and angina frequency score as well as higher depression score are necessary. The early detection and treatment would decrease the prevalence of PTSD at recovery phase after first time acute myocardial infraction. Those finding also provide more information for the continues care.
