Available online at Jingping Zhang, Man Ye, Haishan Huang, Lezhi Li, and Aiyun Yang Odds of major depression have significantly increased among adults withchronic diseases. However, the diagnosis of depression is often unrecognizedin China.To know the prevalence of depression in medical inpatients with differ-ent chronic diseases and to assess the level of unrecognized depression amonghospitalized patients, we assessed depression in patients with cardiovasculardisease, diabetes, and chronic pulmonary heart disease. In this study, it hasbeen shown that 78.9% of patients with pulmonary heart disease, diabetes, hy-pertension, or coronary heart disease have different levels of depression. Therewere no significant differences in incidence of depression among different gen-der, age, education levels, marital status, or course of disease. There were nosignificant differences in total incidence rate of depression and in incidencerate of different levels of depression among the three groups of patients. It isvery important to help patients with chronic diseases to reduce their depressionby psychological nursing after evaluating their mental status.

We wanted to (a) investigate the prevalence and discriminating rate frequency of patients with myocardial infarction of depression among inpatients with chronic who had a score of 40 or higher on the Self-Rating diseases in Changsha, China; (b) find out how to Depression Scale (SDS) score was 46% (18/39) take care of them in nursing practice; and finally, (c) and that of patients who scored higher than 50 was improve the quality of nursing. As the medical model shifted from the biomedical model to the biopsychosocial model in the past decade, we have reported that 60% of inpatients with coronary heart underscored the importance of psychological and disease had depression accompanied by anxiety.
and the nursing philosophy also has changed patients with type 2 diabetes had psychological from patient-centered nursing to person-centered disorders and that 34.78% of them had depression nursing. Person centeredness is defined by accompanied by anxiety. Depression is common as a standing or status that is bestowed upon one human being by others in the context of However, the diagnosis of depression is often relationship and social being. It implies recognition, respect, and trust. Based on such a definition, diagnosed symptomatic depression in 67 of 155 from it as the heart of person-centered nursing: (a) patients (43%), whereas the geriatrician identified being in relation, (b) being in a social world, (c) symptomatic depression in 29 (19%) of the 155 being in place, (d) and being with self.

Table 2. Zung Scores of 322 Cases of Chronic Patients Descriptive analysis was used for demographic data. One-way classification of analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to analyze the mean of total scores of depression. Comparisons of the qualita- tive data were analyzed by chi-square test. All statistical procedures were performed with SPSSversion 11.0 for Windows.
Most (85.09%, n = 274) of the patients were married. Most respondents (78.26%, n = 252) havecompleted at least a junior middle school education.

Comparison of Zung Scores of Patients With Different DEPRESSION OF CHRONIC MEDICAL INPATIENTS IN CHINA Table 4. Comparison of Varying Degrees of Depression in Three 46% among patients with myocardial infarction depressive symptoms in the study might be a result of the Chinese economic status and the overall low educational level of participants. Firstly, China is a developing country and the income per capita is very low (about 1,000 dollars every year), whereas the fee of hospitalization is several hundred to one thousand dollars generally and chronic illnesses are prone to relapse. It is reported that there were133.41 million people who had medical insurance by September 2005 in China. However, there are differences among the three groups according to still a lot of people who do not have medical chi-square test (χ2 = 4.309, P = .366).

The financial burden is quite heavy, especially for those who must pay for the entire medical care. Secondly, one fifth of our assessment and psychiatric assessment are shown participants had less than 6 years of education. Low educational level might limit their awareness or clinically significant levels of depression. However, ability to search for related resources to cope with only 39 patients were diagnosed by physicians as their depression. Chronic illnesses such as pulmon- having clinical depression.

In addition, these chronic China (e.g., pulmonary heart disease [11.45%], illnesses interfere with daily activities and add to diabetes [12.90%], hypertension, and coronary patients' overall levels of stress. On the basis of these factors, depressive symptoms of inpatients inour study might be expected to be higher than those The frequency of depression was also noticeably higher than that of general medical inpatients due to Of patients with pulmonary heart disease, different choices of participants.

In our study, symptomatic disease using multiple regression analysis.

The high prevalence of depression among patients with pulmonary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, we asked the physicians or nurses whether they or coronary heart disease requires attention and noticed patients' depressive symptoms and paid interventions. Studies have shown that the high attention to each patient's differences, the physi- frequency of emotional diseases among chronic cians said that they were not specialists in medical inpatients has led to poor self-care, wrong psychological areas; hence, they may not detect diagnosis of diseases, low quality of life, and high and treat these symptoms, and they therefore believed that the psychological symptoms were natural among inpatients. They argued that the most that baseline depression leads to an increased risk of important thing to do was to cure the patients' physical diseases, and that if the physical diseases A cross-sectional study suggested that 35% of the were cured, the psychological symptoms would patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) had mental disorders, the most common being major The other possible reasons for underrecognition depressive disorder (15.9%), and that the prevalence of depression are as follows: Firstly, the coexistence of mental disorders in patients with PH increased of depression and physical illness may be coin- significantly with functional impairment, from 17.7% cidental. Depression may lead to physical illness, or (New York Heart Association [NYHA] Class I) to physical illness may lead to depression; thus, depressive symptoms may be understandable in . A significant and consistent association was the context of physical illness, and physicians may found between depression and complications of sometimes overlook those symptoms of depression.
Secondly, uncontrolled comorbidity and medication treatment are factors that may be misleading in associated with inadequate treatment of several diagnosing depression. For example, the geriatri- chronic diseases including diabetes mellitus ( cian may fail to recognize depression among patients with osteoarticular diseases who complain about bone and joint pain, although the pain associated with this common degenerative disorder may be increased by depression. Moreover, physi- cians are probably not sufficiently aware of the fact pharmacy data. Patients with depression who do not that older patients with depression often present take their medication for psychological disorders are hospitalized more frequently and have higher overall that they think somatic symptoms may be the result health care costs than the average person of the physical illness itself. Furthermore, depres- sive symptoms may be present covertly, in particular substantially increases the costs of care to patients with with psychosomatic symptoms or with hypochon- dria, which may lead to confusion with the their stress burden. Therefore, we must attach greater coexisting illness. Finally, many Chinese physicians importance to the emotional problems of patients and are unfamiliar with depressive symptoms and treatments, in particular that the severity of medicalproblems can lead physicians to underestimate the presence of affective disorders in patients. This could result in patients who showed depressive When depression occurs in comorbidity with symptoms requiring psychiatric intervention but other diseases, especially chronic diseases, it is were not referred to the appropriate services.
