what is the difference of duration between acute and chronic post traumatic stress disorder ?




  #2

3month?


  #3

I think the duration to Dx PTSD is 06 months,while for acute stress disorder is 01 months.


  #4

acute...less than 3 months
chronic...more than 3 months


  #5

Well if the patient only has symptoms for less than a month=acute stress disorder
greater than a month = Post traumatic stress disorder


and not that its related but

schizophrenia-like symptoms less than a month= Acute/Brief psychotic dis
> a month but < 6 months= Schizophreniform
>6 months= schizophrenia

right?


  #6

>12 months= schizophrenia :?:


  #7

How about depression?


  #8

Are your sure its greater than 12?.....I think its >6....for a diagnosis of schizophrenia..


  #9

sk, you are right. sorry, it's 6 months.


  #10

yep schizophrenia..more than 6 months

schizophreniform.....less than 6 months but greater than 1 month .
