Acute Myocardial Infarction in Severe Mental Illness: prevalence, clinical outcomes and process of care in United States hospitalizations.
Patients with severe mental illness (SMI) are a high-risk group for cardiovascular disease. The present study examined the prevalence and outcomes of SMI patients in a national AMI cohort. SMI has doubled in prevalence amongst AMI patients, mainly due to a rise in Major Depression and Bipolar Disorder. Only Schizophrenia and ‘Other non-organic psychoses’ groups were associated with worse outcomes, but all SMI subtypes were less likely to receive invasive management for their AMI.
