Heart Attack Survivors May Not Be Getting Needed Treatment For Depression, Stress

HealthDay (4/16, Preidt) reported that while “depression, stress and exhaustion are known to increase heart attack risk,” research suggests individuals “who’ve already had a heart attack may not be getting the treatment they need for these conditions.” Investigators came to this conclusion after studying “more than 800 people younger than 75,” all of whom had experienced a heart attack. The findings were presented at the European Society of Cardiology meeting.
