Description

Cardiovascular Implications of Stress and Depression provides an in-depth examination into how exposure to stress influences risk for cardiovascular disease and how depression is associated with this relation. This authoritative volume examines causal pathways linking stress, depression, and cardiovascular disease as well as providing mechanistic insights into how environmental stress could possibly lead to cardiovascular diseases. This work also considers how therapeutic approaches to prevent or ameliorate depression and how it informs our understanding of whether stress causes cardiovascular diseases. Current information about mechanistic factors, clinical and epidemiological aspects, and management issues associated with stress/depression are presented. Insight into the mechanisms behind how chronic stress and depression leads to cardiovascular diseases and its role in existing diseases (such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes) is also explored.

Key Features

  • Provides the latest information on how stress leads to depression and how stress/depression interacts to accelerate cardiovascular diseases, including stroke
  • Delivers insight on how mechanisms of stress/depression affect the vasculature
  • Explores how best to research this topic from human to pre- clinical models

Readership

Researchers of cardiology, physiology, pharmacology, psychology, epidemiology and neuroscience as well as cardiologists
