Abstract

Objective: To investigate predictors of depressive symptom aggravation at the end of a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program. Methods: The design of the study was retrospective. The administrative data were obtained from the database of the CR department of a heart hospital in Iran. The demographic and clinical information of 615 CR patients between January 2000 and January 2010 was analyzed using binary logistic regression analysis. Results: The results showed that 10.7 of the patients completed the CR program with aggravated depressive symptoms. After adjustment for gender, age, and pre-intervention depression score, lower education level (p<0.05) and smoking (p<0.01) were significant predictors of increased depressive symptoms at the end of the program. Our model variables could explain 6 to 13 of the dependent variable variance. Conclusion: The results suggest that targeting patients who are less literate or who smoke could allow for taking the required measures to prevent or control depression at the end of a CR program. It is suggested that future studies consider other variables. © 2015 by Korean Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine.
