The administration of psychologically provocative research instruments could spuriously affect results. We examined the physiologic stress response of patients with myocardial infarction (MI) to completing the Beck depression inventory, illness perception questionnaire and Spielberger state anxiety inventory 24 to 48 hours post acute event. Salivary cortisol, heart rate variability (HRV) heart rate and mean arterial pressure (MAP) were measured prior to instrument administration and 30 minutes after as indicators of the stress response. Twenty-four subjects (16 men) completed the study. Mean baseline measures of salivary cortisol (.558mcg/dL), heart rate (86bpm) and MAP (86mmHg) were well within the normal ranges. Repeated measures ANOVA demonstrated no significant difference in salivary cortisol, [F(1,23)=2.59,pNS], HRV [F(1,18)=.27,pNS], heart rate [F(1,23)=4.29,pNS], MAP [F(1,22)=.859, pNS] pre and post interview. These results suggest that completing psychological instruments in the first 24 to 48 hours following MI was not a stressful event for this sample of patients. The effect of psychological instruments needs to be examined further in larger samples of MI patients.
