Beschreibungen

Recently, there has been a growing awareness of the multiple interrelationships between depression and various physical diseases. Patients with psychiatric problems, particularly depression, may be more susceptible to cardiovascular disorders. Depression and Heart Disease synthesizes current evidence, including some previously unpublished data, in a concise, easy-to-read format. The authors succinctly describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis (including cytokines and genetics), and risk factors of the comorbidity between depression and heart disease. The book also reviews the best pharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches for people with this comorbidity.

"Depression and Heart Disease provides a comprehensive review of the research on the subject and fascinating speculations about the underlying mechanisms in a short, easy-to-read volume. Internists, cardiologists, and psychiatrists would find this book interesting and helpful in clinical practice" (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, 2011) "The present miniseries, Depression and Diabetes, Depression and Heart Disease and Depression and Cancer is a unique initiative to make physical diseases visible in psychiatry and to support the treatment ... To this reviewer the books have two strengths: their thematic broadness and the practical approach. The chapters about how to act clinically are excellent, pragmatic and consequently written .... The idea behind the series is excellent and the books are marvellous. After having read them no one will doubt that psychiatry is a medical speciality (that psychiatrists must be physicians first, psychiatrists next, that psychiatry must be done by psychiatrists and psychiatry must be lead by psychiatrists.)" (Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica, 2011) "In summary this book is exceptionally well edited, very informative, and referenced with and a comprehensive evidence based bibliography. The book is so well done that I have already used it for psychosomatic literature review in our fellowship. What better praise? This is a book to purchase and read and use as a reference!" (Psychosomatics) "The editors excel at making the chapters readable, informative, yet minimally redundant. The clinical guidance and research summaries make it a “must have” for any physician who works with adults. This includes primary care physicians, specialists such as cardiologists and surgeons and psychiatrists. As more physician extenders are utilized the book should also be required for physician’s assistants and nurse practioners who work with such patients on a regular basis, either as part of a hospital or office based team or independently." (Psychosomatics, 2010) "This book thoroughly reviews the current evidence and mechanisms underlying the interplay between depression and cardiovascular disease and stresses the importance of timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment." (Doody's, 4 November 2011)

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the multiple interrelationships between depression and various physical diseases. The WPA is providing an update of currently available evidence on these interrelationships by the publication of three books, dealing with the comorbidity of depression with diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Many patients with cardiovascular disease also experience psychiatric symptoms and distress. Patients with psychiatric problems, particularly depression, may be more susceptible to cardiovascular disorders. The presence of depression aggravates the course of the disease and is associated with reduced compliance to prescribed medications and secondary prevention measures. Cardiologists and psychiatrists therefore need an awareness of these problems and to know how to assess their effect in a given patient, how to treat one disorder in the context of another and how to manage the whole patient, not isolated symptoms. Depression and Heart Disease is the first book devoted to the interaction between these common disorders. World leaders in cardiology and psychiatry synthesize current evidence, including some previously unpublished data, in a concise, easy-to-read format. They succinctly describe the epidemiology, pathogenesis (including cytokines and genetics) and risk factors of the comorbidity between depression and heart disease. The book also reviews the best pharmacological and psychotherapeutic approaches for people with this comorbidity. Its practical approach makes the book ideal for all those involved in the management of these patients: psychiatrists, psychologists, cardiologists, general practitioners, cardiology specialist nurses and mental health nurses.
