The experience and expression of anger and anxiety in bronchial asthma patients

Ansiedad y Estres 10/2012; 18(2-3):221-230.

ABSTRACT This study investigated differences between asthma patients and a control group of healthy individuals in their responses to eight measures of trait anxiety and the experience, expression and control of anger. The Inventory of Situations and Responses of Anxiety (ISRA) and a Spanish adaptation of State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI) were administered to medical outpatients diagnosed as suffering from bronchial asthma and a control group of healthy persons closely matched for age and gender. Asthma patients had significantly higher ISRA trait anxiety scores, reported more physiological and motor anxiety, thoughts of insecurity, as well as more anxiety in relation to four different situational areas. The asthma patients also reported experiencing anger more frequently, and without provocation, than healthy persons as reflected in higher STAXI T-Anger, Angry Temperament, and Anger-Out scores. These results provide evidence of the importance of dealing with negative emotions in the treatment of bronchial asthma patients.

    ABSTRACT: En el presente trabajo se estudia y explica la relación entre depresión y asma bronquial, ofreciendo datos de dicha relación a través del triple sistema de respuesta. Para tal fin, se ha utilizado el Cuestionario Tridimensional para la Depresión C.T.D. (Jiménez, Miguel-Tobal y Cano Vindel,1996), cuestionario que ofrece una medida general de depresión y ofrece por primera vez medidas de depresión en el triple sistema de respuesta (cognitivo, fisiológico y motor). A través de instrumento se han obtenido diferencias altamente significativas entre un grupo de asmáticos adultos y un grupo control equiparado en cuanto a edad y sexo. Según nuestros datos los asmáticos parecen más deprimidos que el grupo control. In this study, the relationship between depression and bronchial asthma is studied and explained throughout the triple system of response. In order to do this, Tridimensional Questionnaire for Depression C.T.D. (Jiménez, Miguel-Tobal y Cano-Vindel,1996), has been used. Questionnaire which not only offers a general measure of depression but it offers for the first time measures in triple system of response (cognitive, physiological and motor). Through this instrument, highly significative differences between a group of asthmatic adults and a control group compared regarding age and sex have been found.
