Intensive Care Psychological Assessment Tool (IPAT): Turkish validity and reliability study

This study aims to evaluate the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of IPAT. Materials and methods: In total, 98 patients were included. To assess concurrent validity, the Intensive Care Experiences Scale (ICES) and the Hospital Anxiety Depression Scale were performed. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was used to estimate internal consistency. Interitem and item-total score correlations were also performed. Sensitivity and specificity were derived for concurrent anxiety and depression. Results: The internal reliability was good. Cronbach’s a = 0.85. Items were well-correlated, with an average interitem correlation of 0.38. The concurrent validity of IPAT was good. Correlation between IPAT scores, anxiety, depression, ICES, and the diagnosis of delirium were as follows, respectively: r = 0.61, P

This study suggests FD patients with different types of FT with the course of disease and the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ9) showed a significant difference. The PHQ9, course of disease, and self-rated dyspepsia symptoms (SRDS) correlated positively with the types of FT by the Spearman rank analysis. Epigastric pain, bloating, nausea, and SRDS showed a significant difference between FT-FD and nonfissured tongue- (NFT-) FD as well as between FD patients with and without symptoms of depression. Many FD patients also have FT, which may be associated with depressive symptoms. The longer the course of disease, the m...
