Comparison of attention-deficit, hyperactivity, related features, WURS
and Fagerstrom scores among the groups ADHD ND Min-Max Mean[+ or -]SD Min-Max Attention deficit 9.
En el caso de la presente muestra, se realizo un analisis factorial exploratorio para la prueba WURS, empleando el metodo de componentes principales y la rotacion Varimax.
Previamente se realizo un analisis factorial exploratorio en la escala WURS (25 items) para comprobar su estructura en una muestra especifica de carcelarios.
Seguidamente, se analizo la correlacion entre las puntuaciones directas en las escalas WURS y ASRS, asi como la capacidad predictiva la primera (de caracter retrospectivo) sobre la segunda (diagnostico del TDAH en edad adulta).
Segun los resultados globales de la ASRS y del WURS se determino la prevalencia 'aparente' de TDAH con cribado positivo (numero de individuos con ASRS+ o WURS+ dividido entre el numero total de individuos de la muestra).
For males, the correlations were significant on the Forceful and the Oppositional scales of the MACI with higher WURS scores being associated with being strong willed, dominant, controlling, and defiant.
For women, the only Expressed Concerns scale that was significantly correlated with the WURS was the Self-Devaluation scale.
The Impulsive Propensity scale was significantly correlated with the WURS scores for males.
Participants having WURS scores 36 and above (19 from the anemia group and 9 from the control group) were further assessed using the Adult ADD/ADHD Evaluation Scale and interviewed according to DSM-V criteria by the same psychiatrist.
Iron deficiency anemia group displayed significantly higher WURS scores compared to the control group (p=0.
In our study, WURS and adult-ADHD Evaluation Scale (overall and subscales) scores used for measuring assessing the symptoms and findings of adult-ADHD were found significantly higher among the patients with iron deficiency anemia than the healthy individuals within the control group.
While several recent studies have reported significantly higher scores on WURS
and ASRS in bipolar patients than in depressive patients and HC, others have observed high scores in both bipolar and depressive patient groups (6,7,26,27,28,29).
