Układ krążenia a zaburzenia psychopatologiczne


Title variants

Circulatory system and psychopathological disorders

Languages of publication



W pracy wskazano na związki układu krążenia z czynnikami emocjonalnymi. Istnieje ścisła zależność pomiędzy stanem psychicznym a układem sercowo- naczyniowym. Czynniki psychiczne wywołują wiele objawów ze strony układu krążenia. Szczególnie długotrwałe stany napięcia emocjonalnego mogą powodować trwałe zmiany w układzie krążenia. Jednocześnie istnieje zależność odwrotna. Niektóre z objawów psychopatologicznych, szczególnie lęk, mogą być istotnym sygnałem świadczącym o zaburzeniach układu krążenia. W opracowaniu omawia się niektóre z mechanizmów łączących sferę psychiczną z czynnikami kardiologicznymi. Osobnym, ważnym zagadnieniem przy omawianiu związków pomiędzy stanem psychicznym a układem sercowo-naczyniowym jest prowadzona farmakoterapia, tak psychiatryczna, jak i kardiologiczna. Geriatria 2012; 6: 249-253.
In this work relations between the circulatory system and emotional factors are discussed. There is a close correlation between the mental state and the cardiovascular system. Psychological factors trigger numerous circulatory system symptoms. Especially chronic states of emotional tension may result in permanent circulatory system changes. Meanwhile, there is an inverse correlation, too Some of the psychopathological symptoms, especially anxiety, may be a significant signal of existing circulatory system disorders. In this thesis some of the mechanisms connecting the psyche with cardiologic factors are discussed. Another important issue in discussing the relation between the mental state and the cardiovascular system, is the administered pharmacotherapy, both psychiatric and cardiologic.
