  1. Consultation-liaison psychiatry in an obstetric service.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of the work of a consultation-liaison (C-L) psychiatry service to an obstetric inpatient unit in a university affiliated teaching hospital, with the aid of a comprehensive clinical database.

    Method 

    The MICRO-CARES clinical database system was used for prospective recording of data on all obstetric inpatients referred to the C-L psychiatry service and the hospital clinical database was used to compare referred inpatients with all obstetric inpatients.

    Results 

    Ninety patients were referred in 3 years, a referral rate of 1.2% of obstetric admissions.

    There was no bias in referral on age, but there were significantly more unmarried patients in the referred group (p<0.001).

    Referred patients had a significantly prolonged length of stay : a mean of 9 days for referred patients, with 6 days for all obstetric patients (p<0.001).

    The most frequent reasons for referral were : coping problems, depression, anxiety/fear and past history of major psychiatric illness.

    The most common DSM-III-R psychiatric diagnoses were :

    • Personality Disorders (19%),

    • Mood Disorders (17%),

    • Schizophrenic Disorders (15%) and Adjustment Disorders (13%). At least one confirmed diagnosis was made in 77% of patients, but 42% of diagnoses remained differential.

    There were significantly more patients with diseases of the nervous system, endocrine and circulatory disorders in the referred group (p<0.001). (...)
