BACKGROUND/AIM:
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate depression level correlation with patients revenue and functional recovery.
METHODS:
This study included 251 stroke patients (age 174 average was 65,14 ñ 12,55) who, after the completion &n! bsp; of inpatient rehabilitation, were discharged to their homes. Patients were recruited from 3 hospitals. Patients were eligible if they had a diagnosis of acute ischaemic stroke, defined with International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) criteria, and were to be discharged to their own home with stroke-related impairment and functional limitations. Depression was assessed with Hospital Anxiety and Depression scale. Functional limitations and mobility were measured with the Barthel Index.
Results
46,2% of our ischaemic stroke patients were found to have depression. We found statistical significant depression correlation with functional status (xý = 13,04, df = 4, p = 0,01, LR = 16,38) and patients' revenue (xý = 9,722, df = 4, p = 0,045, LR = 10,424).
Conclusion
Our findings suggest that depression associated with functional status and patients revenue.
