Study Links Depression in Women to Sudden Cardiac Death

NEW YORK–Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston have found a strong correlation between depressive symptoms and cardiac events in women

New data published in the March 9, 2009, issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology suggest that relatively healthy women with severe depression are at increased risk of cardiac events, including sudden cardiac death (SCD) and fatal coronary heart disease (CHD).

Children, Teens Most Likely to Survive Nontraumatic Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest


IOWA CITY, IA–Children and adolescents are twice as likely as infants or adults to survive a nontraumatic, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, a University of Iowa-led research team has found in one of the largest studies of this type of cardiac arrest.

The investigators also found that the survival rate for this type of cardiac arrest for infants younger than age 1 was lower than the survival rate for adults. The findings, which have implications for improving treatment among young patients, were published online March 9 by Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
