HealthDay (3/11, Preidt, Mundell) reports, “The trauma and loss of stroke can often leave survivors with long-term depression, and women appear to be at special risk,” investigators concluded after analyzing “data from Medicare patients aged 65 and older who were hospitalized for either ischemic stroke (more than 174,000) or heart attack (more than 193,000) from July 2016 to Dec. 31, 2017,” then following patients “for an average of 1.5 years.” The findings are set for presentation “later this month at the virtual American Stroke Association’s annual meeting.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
