Abstract

[automatically translated] In order to plan programs for the health of the elderly population that include educational interventions, psychomotor and social, it is important to study how certain psychological factors may reduce the levels of daily activity or increase the risk of developing a disease. Physical activity can reduce anxiety and also prevent the risk of cardiovascular disease, so in this study we have detected levels of anxiety in heart patients before a cardiac procedure or percutaneous coronary revascularization. We used the Y form of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. From this test you get two different scores which indicate the level of anxiety that the subject feels in a given situation (A-State), and the level of anxiety that used to recognizing the daily life (A-Section); we considered these two scores respectively as measures of the level of anxiety and the usual situational anxiety level. The data were analyzed for all subjects, both for two divide groups according to gender affiliation. We analyzed 61 subjects (19 women, 42 men), mean age 58 ± 10. The A-State scores and the A-tract were significantly higher in women than men (respectively 49 ± 11.9 vs 41 , 2 ± 9.2, p <0.0007, and 50 ± 9.9 vs 39.3 ± 9.5, p <0.0001), and this could indicate a substantial gender differences not only in the sense that men and women attach to the situation but also in the evaluation of its internal resources. we considered these two scores respectively as measures of the level of anxiety and the usual situational anxiety level.
