  1. A study of bedside screening procedures for cognitive deficits in chronic psychiatric inpatients.

    Article - En anglais

    The Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and the Trail Making Test, part B (TMT-B) were compared for screening cognitive deficits in a sample of 104 psychiatric inpatients at a long-term hospital.

    The TMT-B classified 84% of the patients as impaired.

    The classic MMSE cutoff score (¾23) using serial sevens and spelling classified 42% and 24% of the patients respectively, as impaired.

    The new MMSE cutoff classified 71% as impaired.

    Education, gender, and medication may influence impairment when using the MMSE classic cutoff scores.

    In TMT-B only, impairment was influenced by chronicity.

    The TMT-B was able to distinguish patients impaired in the MMSE.

    The TMT-B, therefore, may be more useful than the MMSE to screen for cognitive deficits in chronic psychiatric inpatients.
