Abstract PDF
Development of medical technology and economical growth have caused a lot of changes in the disease pattern. Especially coronary artery disease became one of the most important causes of death. This phenomenon is also true for Korean people. In 1999, coronary artery disease accounts for 23.3%(the first rank) of the cause of death among Korean people. There has been an increasing concern about Type A bejavior pattern as a risk factor for coronary artery disease among psychological and social factors. Therefore, the present study attempted to review both prospective and retrospective empirical studies on the relationship between Type A behavior pattern and coronary artery disease. In addition, this study investigated severity and recurrence of CAD related to TABP, and intervention effects, measurement of TABP. Finally, we discussed the limitations of studies on Type A behavior pattern related to coronary artery disease artery disease and proposed its prevention and protection of recurrence.

Abstract PDF
Objective : This study was designed to assess the protective effects of Wonjisoekc hangposan of the animal model of depression, chronic mild stress(CMS).
Method
: Male Sprague-Dawley rats were used for this experiment. The subjects were divided into 3 groups ( 1. CMS-drug: Wonjisoekchangposan administered during CMS treatment, 2.CMS-vehicle: water administered, 3. normal ). After 4 weeks of CMS treatment, they were executed forced swimming test(FST) and Morris water maze. Tyrosine hydroxylase(TH) in ventral tegmental area(VTA) and c-Fos in paraventricular nucleus(PVN) were, also, measured.
Result
: 1. In FST, CMS-drug group showed significant decreased immobility behavior. 2. In Morris water maze, CMS-drug group showed significant short escape latency in 1st session of learning test and no significant change in memory test. 3. CMS-drug group showed significantly lower TH level in VTA than CMS-vehicle group. 4. CMS-drug group showed signifcantly less c-Fos expressed cell bodies in PVN than CMS-vehicle group.
Conclusion
: These results suggest that Wonjisoekchangposan may have protective antidepressant effects in CMS model rats. And these effects could be explained by the elevated stress-copying behaviors which are related with PVN of hypothalamus and dopaminergic neurons in VTA.

Abstract PDF
Purpose : The purpose of this study was to identify the factors influencing Symptoms of Stress of the patient with COPD(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Method : Data were collected by questionnaires from 235 patients with COPD in General Hospital in Seoul. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, pearson correlation coefficients, and stepwise multple regression. Results: 1. The level of symptoms of stress showed moderate(M=2.18).2. The symptoms, of stress showed significant positive correlation with mood state(r=.64,p=00), perceived stress(r=.59,p=.00), and ways of coping(r=.34, p=.00). 3. The stepwise multiple regression analysis revealed that the most powerful predictor of symptoms of stress was mood state(32%). A combination of mood state, ways of coping, perceived stress, social support, and duration of illness account for 42% of the variance in symptoms of stress of the patients with COPD. Conclusion : Date from this study suggest that mood state, ways of coping, and perceived stress are significant influencing factors on symptoms of stress of the patients with COPD.
