Depressed Patients Found to Have a 50% Increased Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death

This study, presented at an American Heart Association conference, looked at 2040 patients with clinical depression and compared them with 3080 matched control patients. The researchers found that 12% of the patients with clinical depression suffered sudden cardiac death, compared to 6% of the matched controls without clinical depression (over a 14 year period from 1980 to 1994). The study was reported by Dr. Jean-Philippe Empana.
