Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAMA)   [1] 
Mean (Standard Deviation)
Unit of measure:  Scores on a scale
Number Analyzed 30 participants
31.1  (5.3)
[1]
Measure Description: The HAMA is a 14-item rating scale designed to assess global anxiety symptoms. Each symptom is rated from 0 (absent) to 4 (severe). The total score of the 14 items ranges from 0 to 56.
Clinical Global Impression Severity (CGI-S)   [1] 
Mean (Standard Deviation)
Unit of measure:  Scores on a scale
Number Analyzed 30 participants
4.5  (0.6)
[1]
Measure Description: The CGI-S provides the clinician's impression of the patient's current state of mental illness. The clinician uses his or her clinical experience of this patient population to rate the severity of the patient's current mental illness on a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (Normal - not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill patients).
Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS) Work   [1] 
Mean (Standard Deviation)
Unit of measure:  Scores on a scale
Number Analyzed 30 participants
6.8  (1.6)
[1]
Measure Description: The SDS comprises self-rated items designed to measure impairment. The patient rates the extent to which his or her (1) work, (2) social life or leisure activities and (3) home life or family responsibilities are impaired on a 10-point visual analogue scale, on which 0 = normal functioning and 10 = severe functional impairment.
Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS) Family   [1] 
Mean (Standard Deviation)
Unit of measure:  Scores on a scale
Number Analyzed 30 participants
6.1  (2.0)
[1]
Measure Description: The SDS comprises self-rated items designed to measure impairment. The patient rates the extent to which his or her (1) work, (2) social life or leisure activities and (3) home life or family responsibilities are impaired on a 10-point visual analogue scale, on which 0 = normal functioning and 10 = severe functional impairment.
Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS) Social   [1] 
Mean (Standard Deviation)
Unit of measure:  Scores on a scale
Number Analyzed 30 participants
6.8  (2.5)
[1]
Measure Description: The SDS comprises self-rated items designed to measure impairment. The patient rates the extent to which his or her (1) work, (2) social life or leisure activities and (3) home life or family responsibilities are impaired on a 10-point visual analogue scale, on which 0 = normal functioning and 10 = severe functional impairment.
