Effectiveness of Psychocardiological Care in Inpatient Rehabilitation: A Pilot Study.

[Effectiveness of Psychocardiological Care in Inpatient Rehabilitation: A Pilot Study]. Psychother Psychosom Med Psychol. 2019 Dec 10;: Authors: Priegnitz J, Langheim E, Rademacher W, Schmitz C, Köllner V Abstract An integrative patient-centered care concept is increasingly demanded for treatment of cardiac patients with concomitant mental disorders. The present study aims to investigate the effect of an integrated concept of psycho-cardiac care (PK) versus a monodisciplinary cardiac (K) or psychosomatic (PSO) care. Patients were examined at baseline (T0), at the time of discharge from the rehabilitation program (T1) and after 6 month (T2). General anxiety, depression (HADS), cardiac anxiety (HAF) and quality of life (SF-12) were evaluated using computer-assisted questionnaires. A total of 93 patients were included (PK: n=37, 55.5 years SD=8.0, 43.2% female; K: n=32, 53.6 years SD=8.2, 34.4% female; PSO: n=24, 55.5 years SD=5.0, 45.8% female). Patients in the PK-group showed a significant reduction of heart-focused anxiety (HAF fear p=0.004) and a significant improvement in quality of life (SF-12 physical p=0.034) during follow-up. In contrast, these parameters remained unchanged in patients in the K- and PSO-groups. The results indicate that cardiac-patients with concomitant mental disorders benefit only from an integrated psycho-cardiac treatment concept. The findings provide first data to psycho-cardiac treatment in stationary rehabilitation and s...

Conclusions: Sleep problems may persist after anxiety treatment, suggesting that CBT for insomnia may be warranted during or after a course of CBT for anxiety. Importantly, baseline insomnia does not impede anxiety reduction during CBT. PMID: 31955594 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Living with anxiety means you become creative with your parenting. You sometimes have to plan staycations instead of faraway vacations. You say no when you want to say yes. You risk your child asking you why a lot. Why can’t we go to the aquarium? Why can’t we go to the baseball game? Why can’t you drive here or there? When I heard those questions, I interpreted them in my mind as, why can’t you be like other moms without anxiety? From there the guilt would seep in.  I am not always the mom who can’t. I’ve had periods in my life where I have been the mom who goes on the school trips...
