Podcast Transcription - Depression: Links to Cardiovascular Disease

Guest: Dr. John Freedy – Family Medicine

Host: Dr. Linda Austin.

Dr. Linda Austin: I am Dr. Linda Austin. I am talking today with Dr. John Freedy who is Assistant Professor of Family Medicine and has a PhD in psychology and has served on our faculty in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences here at MUSC before becoming an MD. So that is an extra set of credentials, John.

 Let’s talk today about a topic that is of special interest to you which is the relationship of depression and heart and vascular disease. How are those two illnesses connected?Dr. John Freedy: The first thing to realize is that they are connected and we can talk about cause or effect. There have been studies looking at people who have had depression in their young adult life and following them over a period of time and controlling for other factors that we think of as risk for cardiovascular disease, things like hypertension, smoking, cholesterol, obesity, and if you control for all those other factors and they were depressed in their young adult life, they are more likely to have their first heart attack. So we know that there is something about being depressed that can put an individual at risk later for heart disease.
Now, once a person has established heart disease, we also know that they are more likely if they are depressed after, say, a heart attack to subsequently have complications including a subsequent heart attack as well, as complications leading to death.Dr. Linda Austin: If somebody is depressed, is there any data to show that getting that depression treated will actually lower the risk of heart attack?

Dr. John Freedy: It is a question that people have been keenly interested in because of the relationship between depression and cardiovascular disease. There have been several well done studies and, disappointingly, it does not appear that treating the depression reduces subsequent heart attack or subsequent cardiovascular death. It does, however, improve quality of life and functionality. So there is a reason to treat the depression, certainly. We do not know the relationship between depression and risk for other diseases and mortality for other causes, so there are still some questions out there and reasons to treat the depression.

Web. 7 Apr. 2014. 


               Dr. John Freedy is  a family medicine doctor with his PhD in psychology. He discusses the relation between how depression can cause heart and vascular disease. He explains that depression in early adulthood increases the risk of heart disease later in life as well. Dr. Freedy offers different possibilities for the underlying link between the depression and cardiovascular disease in this heart disease. I choose this podcast because it gives a different view of how people get heart disease. From example, this psychology doctor believed that depression has a major role in having heart disease in people life when they get old.

Heart disease number one killer in the U.S. - YouTube

Scottsdale man suffers heart attack after health show.
Livin Syam's insight:

              Scottsdale man suffers heart attack after health show:                                                      An Annotated  Biography  

Heart Disease Number One Killer in the U.S. YouTube. YouTube, 28                   Jan. 2013. Web. 06 Apr. 2014.

               I choose this video because it shows how heart disease can become more dangerous than cancer even though both disease has the highest deaths in the Unite States. This video shows how a healthy person who was watching a health show saved his life from Heart Attack. This man got home from work and was tired, so he watching little TV about health and went to sleep like always. In the middle of the night, he woke up and felt heavily chest pain,so he went downstairs and drank some water. This man told his wife that he was feeling chest pain so the wife took the effort to bring him to the hospital at the middle of the night. When he got to the hospital, he was immediately went to the emergency room for the surgery. According to the doctor, this was a silence heart attack mean it was suppose to kill you during your sleep. The main reason I choose this video because it show how easily he could have died with heart attack. I understand that both disease are dangerous and kill you, but it all depend on when do you have the disease.

                  Apr. 2014.

               From reading this news article online, I learned that cancer will be come the number one killer in the United States instead of Heart Disease. In 16 years, it is estimated cancer cases are suppose to increase 45 percent by 2030, from 1.6 millions to 2.3 millions according to American Society of Clinical Oncology.  If the cancer cases increase through out future years, the report are saying that patients will not get excellent care because of the Physician Shortage and financial problems. I learned that there are not enough physician in United States because they are not getting paid fairly and they not taking cancer serious as other disease. The author of the article is also think that patients are not getting enough treatment because of the high price of medicine.

Livin Syam's insight:

             Heart Disease or Cancer Disease:

  Which disease is more dangerous and more p[popular

                       An Annotated Bibliography

Balakrish, Leegia. "Is Cancer or Heart Disease Number

                     One Killer." Personal interview. 6 Apr. 2014.

                  After interviewing Leegia Balakrishan who is a Oncologist at Veteran Hospital , I discovered many information about cancer and Heart Disease.  According to her perspective , cancer and heart disease are both one number killer disease in the United States. She think both disease has gradually increased throughout each year. She think that a person can get Heart Disease if he does not eat healthy, exercise regularly, have a family history with heart disease people and does not control their cholesterol or high blood pressure. She think that a person can identify if they have cancer if they check their blood and see any virus on it. A person will have cancer if its on his DNA. According to her, most people are born with cancer, but it shows up when we do something that trigger it. She think that Cancer is number one killer because its in most people DNA and its waiting on the person to trigger it.

Livin Syam's insight:

          Anthology Work: More Exercise Isn't The Answer:

                        An Annotated Bibliography 

 

Broggie, Taylor. "More Exercise Isn't The Answer." Anthology Wellness. N.p., 07 Dec. 2013. Web. 07 Apr. 2014. 

 

This article is about being healthy or exercise regularly will help you prevent heart disease ,but it will not help you escape from heart disease.  To be healthy, a person has to be active or fit,so he go to gym to workout. The research shows that exercise is not the only thing you need to do ,but you need to relax and have a fun time doing something you like.  For example, you can watch your favorite basketball game or go to party with your friends,so your body can get relax and not be stressed. Exercise and relaxing can be two ways to reduce heart disease symptoms.  The new researchers have founded that each person has to sit and relax  several hours ,so the body can take a break. The reasons why this article say we need to sit more because if we don't sit, we will increase our metabolism, and circulation, use more muscles during our day, reduce hip, leg,and back pain and will build bone density. There is a quiz on this website and it will show how many hours you need to sit a day. I understand that sitting is not the only thing you have to do to decrease your risk of  heart disease. You need to do little exercise while you are at home and don't be watching TV or sleeping all day. For example, you can take a walk with your friend in the park rather than meeting him in a coffee shop.  You can take the stair instead of the elevator.  You can sit different position like sitting on the floor or laying on the floor studying homework rather staying at one position all the time. This is important because your blood will be moving all the time.  The last you can do is stretch while watching TV or reading books rather sitting on the couch. This article taught me that people can reduce the risk of heart disease if they follow little rules like exercising and relaxing, so your body be active and getting rest.

                                       Catching Cancer Early

                                  An Annotated Biography

This broadcast transcript is about interviewing Sallyann King and asking her questing about how early can we catch cancer. According to her, cancer is the second leading cause disease in the United States. It is estimated that a million and half people die from cancer everyday in the United States. She think that cancer screening test is a tool to help people find out if they have cancer. For example, since they start using the screen test, breast cancer have reduced large amounts over past twenty years. She discovered that lung and breast cancer are the most common cancer in the United States. The doctor recommend that women get mammograms every two years to detect breast cancer and men should take sigmoidocopy every five years. For most adults who are at average risk, they should start at the age of 50 with the scan test.

     Heart Disease and Cancer Statistics 2010:

                      An Annotated Bibliography

 "QuickStats: Number of Deaths from 10 Leading Causes — National

                 Vital Statistics System, United States, 2010." Centers for                            Disease Control and Prevention. Centers for Disease                                   Control and Prevention, 01 Mar. 2013. Web. 07 April.2014.                  

               In 2010, a total of 2,468,435 deaths occurred in the United States. The first two leading causes of death was  heart disease (597,689 deaths) and cancer (574,743).  I was so surprised to see how close these two disease deaths are in 2010. From my research, I learned that most people who had heart disease was killed by Coronary Artery Disease. Most of the common symptoms of this disease was Chest Pain and Shortness of breath. I also discovered that most popular cancer is Lung Cancer because of the smoking of men and women. If people quit smoking, the amount of lung cancer would drop immediately. From this graph, I can understand that heart disease was the top death. I think most people die from heart disease because of the unhealthy eating of the Americans and be lazy and not exercising or not being active most of the time.

Livin Syam's insight:

Sharp, Nancy. "This Is Where The End Of Cancer Begins." Web log post. Stand Up to Cancer. Entertainment Industry Foundation, 2008. Web. 5 Apr. 2014.

             Stand Up 2 Cancer is a unique organization in the American medical community. They fund research and develop connections between institutions and organizations to help find more effective treatments faster. Many Cancer patients express their rough stressful diagnosis story and how their life  was through this website. I was inspired and touched to see how many people fight their life through cancer. I choose  this blog site because this organization try to research and discover many new theory ,so they can help cure the cancer patients faster. I was feeling sad and sorrow after hearing  many people life story while they was going through their diagnosis. 

For example, Nancy Sharp was a mother of two sons and did every thing in her strength to save her son Brett from Brain Cancer. Brett took many tests and treatments ,such as  MRI scan, Chemotherapy, Radiation, Gamma Knife, and Tissue Transplants. The none of the treatment did not save Brett from living in this world.

                       Heart Disease: what is it and what cause it

                             what are the statistics of  this disease:

                                     An Annotated Bibliography

"What Is Heart Disease."The Heart Foundation. The Heart

               Foundation,2014. Web. 05 Apr. 2014. 

             Heart Disease is a term which is used to identify variety of diseases of the heart and blood vessels, such as coronary artery disease, heart rhythm disorders called arrhythmia and defects of the heart present at birth called Congenital heart defects. There are many types of Heart Disease which can cause death, but the common disease that kill millions of people is Coronary Artery Disease. This disease appear in our body when the  plaque which is made up of fat, cholesterol, and calcium builds up inside the coronary arteries which supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle.  When this happen, it is called atherosclerosis which is the plaque building up in our blood. The plaque can grow largely  enough to completely block blood flow through  an artery. This is an enormous and serious problem

because the plaque can cause blood clot to either block the artery or break off and move to different place in the body which can cause blockage at the  entire heart.  When the blockage takes place in a blood vessel that feeds the heart, the result will be  a Heart Attack or a sudden Cardiac Death. Heart disease is the number one cause of death claiming approximately 1 million lives annually.

It is estimated that by 2020, heart disease will be the leading cause of death throughout the United States. The Heart Foundation Research have calculated that this year more than 920,000 Americans will have a heart attack with no symptoms or warning signs. The research have discovered that about 8.9 million Americans have heart disease from chest pain.
