PTSD After Cardiac Arrest Predicts More Heart Trouble

Survivors of cardiac arrest are more likely to experience further heart trouble—and even death—if they have symptoms of PTSD when discharged from the hospital, according to a new study from researchers at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

“Because nearly a third of cardiac arrest survivors in our study reported PTSD symptoms, finding treatments that diminish the impact of PTSD symptoms is critical to improving outcomes in survivors,” says study leader Sachin Agarwal, MD, MPH, assistant professor of neurology at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and a critical care neurologist at NewYork-Presbyterian.
