    Croatian abstract

    U ovom je radu istraživan odnos između načina suočavanja, razine anksioznosti i depresije te karakteristika opekline u ranoj fazi liječenja bolesnika s opeklinama. Sedamdeset bolesnka s opsežnim opeklinama intervjuirani su unutar dva tjedna nakon nastanka opekline. Strategije suočavanja mjerene su upitnikom za suočavanje s opeklinama (CBQ). Razina anksioznosti i depresije mjerena je pomoću Beckovog upitnika depresivnosti i Beckovog upitnika anksioznosti. Nisu pronađene statisticki značajne spolne razlike u različitim strategijama suočavanja. Izbjegavajuće je ponašanje povezano s višom razinom anksioznosti, depresije i beznađa. Postotak opečene površine tijela (TBSA) i lokalizacija opekline nisu povezane sa oblicima suočavanja. Analizirana je moguća primjena dobivenih rezultata u procjeni i liječenju bolesnika s opeklinama.

    English abstract

    This study examined the relationship between coping strategies, anxiety and depression levels and burn injury characteristics in the early phase of the treatment in burn-injured patients. Seventy patients with severe burns were interviewed within two weeks of their burn trauma. Coping strategies were measured by the coping with burns questionnaire (CBQ). Anxiety and depression levels were assessed with the Beck Depression Inventory and the Beck Anxiety Inventory. There were no statistically significant gender differences in various coping strategies. Avoidance was associated with higher levels of anxiety, depression and hopelessness. The percentage of total body surface area (TBSA) and localization of burns were not associated with coping patterns. Implications for the assessment and management of burn injured patients were discussed.
