Management of the myocardial infarction patient may extend beyond the physiologic to include psychosocial factors that may adversely affect cardiac health. Psychosocial factors such as depression, coronary-prone behavior, hostility, social isolation, anxiety, anger, and stress are related to increased cardiac death and illness. Various interventions including cognitive-behavioral therapies, techniques that elicit the relaxation response, meditation, exercise, and increasing social networks, may play a role in improving health outcomes. This article explores the relationship of these psychosocial factors to cardiac health and proposes a biopsychosocial model of care.
