睡眠质量差会增加老年人自杀的风险

2014-08-14    来源:English.news.cn    【      美国外教 在线口语培训
老年人中有睡眠障碍的比例很高;与其他年龄段人群相比,这一群体自杀风险也特别高。一项发表于8月13日《美国医学会杂志·精神病学》的研究确认,与那些睡眠质量较高的个体相比,睡眠质量较差的老年人死于自杀的风险更高,提示针对这一人群进行睡眠干预的重要性。
 
Poor sleep quality increases suicide risk for older adults
 
Older adults suffering from poor sleep quality are more likely to die of suicide than well- rested adults, a U.S. study said Wednesday.
 
The study, published in the U.S. journal JAMA Psychiatry, is important because sleep disturbances are highly treatable, yet arguably less stigmatizing than many other suicide risk factors, said lead author Rebecca Bernert of Stanford University School of Medicine.
 


Older adults have disproportionately higher rates of suicide risk compared to other age groups, making suicide prevention in elderly populations a pressing public health challenge, according to Bernert.
 
Using data from an epidemiological study of 14,456 adults aged 65 and older, Bernert and her colleagues compared the sleep quality of 20 patients who died by suicide with the sleep patterns of 400 similar individuals over a 10-year period.
 
They found that participants reporting poor sleep had a 1.4 times greater chance of death by suicide than participants who reported sleeping well.
 
Two sleep factors in particular -- difficulty falling asleep and nonrestorative sleep -- were associated with increased suicide risk.
 
The researchers were also surprised to find that poor sleep predicted suicide risk better than depressive symptoms when comparing the two risk factors.
 
"Suicide is the outcome of multiple, often interacting biological, psychological and social risk factors," Bernert said. "Disturbed sleep stands apart as a risk factor and warning sign in that it may be undone, which highlights its importance as a screening tool and potential treatment target in suicide prevention."(English.news.cn)
