We evaluated the association of psychiatric morbidity during the early phase of admission to a coronary care unit with cardiac diagnosis and subsequent morbidity. Ninety-two patients admitted for the first time for presumed myocardial infarction were evaluated within 48 hours of hospitalization. Anxiety and depressive symptoms and cognitive impairment were rated. Data were collected on cardiac diagnosis and morbidity. Three and 12 months after hospitalization, cardiac morbidity, psychiatric symptoms and psychosocial morbidity were assessed.
