HealthDay (11/10, Mozes) reports research “suggests that cardiac arrest survivors who” practice “mindfulness” during their “recovery are less likely to become depressed or anxious.” For the study, set to be presented “at an AHA online meeting,” researchers “focused on 129 cardiac arrest patients, equally divided between men and women,” who “completed an initial mental survey in 2019 to assess for depression, anxiety and PTSD,” and then a second survey one year later.
