Abstract:Purpose: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and depression are significant burdens among Hispanic/Latinos in the U.S. The objective of this systematic review is to examine whether there is an association between depressive symptoms with CVD and CVD risk factors among Hispanic/Latina women in the U.S. Methods: The following electronic databases were used: PubMed, CINAHL, PsychINFO, PsychARTICLES, Academic Search Ultimate (EBSCO), and Social Services Abstracts to identify articles that examined associations between CVD or CVD risk factors and depression among Hispanic/Latina women. Articles selected for review included Latina/Hispanic women with a focus on the associations between CVD or CVD risk factors and depression in Hispanic/Latina women in the U.S. Results: Three studies were included in this systematic review. Two articles assessed the associations between CVD risk factors and depression. One examined the associations between CVD and depression in Hispanic/Latina women. One study revealed that there is an association between CVD and depressive symptoms in Hispanic/Latina women compared to Hispanic/Latina women without a history of CVD. The reviewed studies also indicated that depression is associated with different CVD risk factors such as obesity, BMI, and current smoking status. Conclusion: Hispanic/Latina women and healthcare providers should be mindful that there is an association between depression with CVD and CVD risk factors such as obesity, BMI, and moking. Therefore, early and continuous assessment of these conditions is needed.
