Depression, anxiety, and emergency department use for asthma.
This study examined whether pediatric patients with asthma who use the emergency department (ED) experience increased depression and anxiety in the same way that adult asthma patients do. Out of 65,342 patients identified from the Massachusetts All-Payer Claims Database for 2014 to 2015 who had ED visits, 24.7% had a diagnosis of anxiety, depression, or both. Asthma rates were shown to be higher than those of patients who had no diagnosis of anxiety or depression.
