Antidepressant use and depressive symptoms in intensive care unit survivors.
Nearly 30% of intensive care unit (ICU) survivors have depressive symptoms 2-12 months after hospital discharge. In this study, the investigators examined the prevalence of depressive symptoms and risk factors for depressive symptoms in 204 patients at their initial evaluation in the Critical Care Recovery Center (CCRC), an ICU survivor clinic based at Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana.
