Abstract

Co-morbid depression and coronary artery disease (CAD) is highly prevalent. The aim of present study was to assess the prevalence of depression among patients with CAD and associated factors. This cross sectional study was conducted in southern Iran. During 2013, a total of 100 patients were selected using convenience sampling. Beck depression inventory (BDI) was distributed among patients with CAD. Patients with depression score below 9 were considered as healthy subjects and those with score of 9-18, 19-29, 30-40 and above 40 were characterized as mild, moderate, severe and very severe depression. The mean age of participants was 52.3 ± 10. 19. The cumulative depression score of participants was 17.8 ± 9. 19. A number of 18 patients did not meet the criterion for depression, while 42, 38 and 12 suffered from mild, moderate and severe depression, respectively. Depression had significant correlation with lower educational level, lower income, unemployment and patients who lived alone. The prevalence of depression in southern Iran was higher than other regions. Clinical structured interview for accurate diagnosis and suitable treatment is recommended.
