An EMS guide to depression and bipolar disorder

from EMS Reference

Depression and bipolar disorder are categorized as mood disorders and are frequently associated with calls for EMS. People with depression experience profound sadness, guilt, and loss of interest in activities, while people with bipolar disorder experience those symptoms along with periods of high energy, euphoria, and irritability. Paramedics may be called for a primary complaint involving a mood disorder, or it may be a comorbid factor in another medical condition. Mood disorders may also present with physical symptoms that may be difficult to differentiate from a medical problem. more
