Depression Associated with Higher Risk for the Common Heart Arrhythmia

A new study, conducted by the American Heart Association, suggests that people with depression are at higher risk for a common heart arrhythmia.

During the study, a team of scientists found that those patients who were on antidepressants or scored in the highest category for depression symptoms were at 30% higher risk of atrial fibrillation.

Lead study author Dr. Parveen Garg explains: “Our findings identify a large portion of Americans who may be at an increased risk for developing atrial fibrillation. Clinicians and patients should be aware that depression has been shown in several studies to be a risk factor for heart disease in general and, in this study, for atrial fibrillation as well.”
