Resumo

ARRUDA, Guilherme Oliveira de et al. Association between self-reported health and sociodemographic characteristics with cardiovascular diseases in adults. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.1, pp.61-68. ISSN 0080-6234.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-623420150000100008.

OBJECTIVE

To assess the association of sociodemographic and self-rated health in the presence of cardiovascular diseases and the association of this perception with the type of disease.

METHODS

A cross-sectional population survey study carried out with 1,232 individuals aged between 20 and 59 years of both genders living in the metropolitan region of Maringá-PR. Data were analyzed using multiple and simple logistic regression.

RESULTS

In multivariate analysis, the age range and self-rated health were associated with cardiovascular disease, and in the univariate analysis self-rated regular health was associated with arterial hypertension, while self-rated poor health was associated to heart failure, stroke, and to acute myocardial infarction (heart attack).

CONCLUSION

The differences in association of self-rated health with these diseases can indicate how individuals with certain characteristics cope with the disease, allowing for more individualized and specific health care.
