Abstract

Patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) experience reduced quality of life which may be associated with mortality in the longer term. This study explores whether patient-rated physical and mental health status was associated with mortality at 6-year follow-up among patients with CHD attending primary care in Ireland and Northern Ireland. This study is a secondary data analysis of patients with CHD recruited to a cluster randomized controlled trial from 2004 to 2010. Data collected included patient-rated physical component summary (PCS) and mental component summary (MCS) scores of health status (from the 12-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-12)), demographics and clinical parameters at baseline, and all-cause mortality at 6-year follow-up. Multivariate regression was conducted using generalized estimating equations (GEE) with a log-link function. Results are presented as odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The study consisted of 762 individuals with mean age 67.6 years [standard deviation (SD): 9.8], and was 29% female. Mean baseline SF-12 mental (MCS) and physical (PCS) component scores were 50.0 (SD: 10.8) and 39.6 (SD: 11.2), respectively. At 6-year follow-up, the adjusted OR for the baseline MCS for mortality was 0.97 (95% CI: 0.95-0.99) and for the PCS 0.97 (95% CI: 0.95-0.99). For every five-point increase in MCS and PCS scores, there was a 14% reduction in the likelihood of all-cause mortality. Overall, the magnitude of effect for both mental health status and physical health status was similar; higher scores were significantly associated with a lower risk of mortality at 6-year follow-up.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 May 2018.
All research outputs
#2,865,738
of 13,022,627 outputs
Outputs from Family Practice
#353
of 1,378 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#80,451
of 310,743 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Family Practice
#14
of 38 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,022,627 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,378 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 310,743 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 38 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
