RELATIVES OF ICU PATIENTS HANDLE STRESS BASED ON CULTURE
(Wednesday, October 29, 1:00 PM EST)

Families of Indian origin experience a high prevalence of anxiety and depression related to loved ones being in the ICU. Researchers from Ben Taub General Hospital in Houston compared the prevalence of anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder in relatives of critically ill patients in the ICUs of a public hospital in India (n=47 relatives) and the United States (n=43 relatives). Anxiety and/or depression were more prevalent in relatives of Indian ICU patients (87.23 percent) than in a similar cohort in the US (18.6 percent). Researchers suggest that further studies correlating these responses to cultural, as well as patient-related, family-related, and ICU environment-related factors, can help ICU staff better understand these differences and provide improved targeted support and coping strategies to affected families.

Of the patients, 129 had a positive test resu
