Background and aim: Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) despite physical disorders can also lead to significant mental disturbances like anxiety and depression. Therefore, the present study was conducted in order to assess the level of anxiety and depression in the elderly with acute coronary syndromes hospitalized in selected hospitals in Tehran 1400.
Methods: The current study is a cross-sectional, quantitative and descriptive-analytical study that was conducted in 2021. The study population included the elderly male and female patients (over 60 years old) who suffered from acute coronary syndrome hospitalized in selected hospitals in Tehran. For this purpose, 229 people were randomly selected to participate in the study. The Abbreviated Mental Test (AMT) and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) were used as questionnaries in this study.
Results: Findings showed that with an increase of one unit of the anxiety score, if other variables were fixed, the depression score increased by an average of 0.45 units. Also, the results for other demographic variables showed that people with low education, having non-personal residence, lack of social support, families with more than four children, unemployed people and male gender had a higher depression score.
Conclusion: Considering the existence of a significant relationship between anxiety and depression with the mentioned variables, it is suggested that health service providers and their families pay attention to elderly patients in order to reduce the level of anxiety and depression.
