Abstract

Purpose: It is estimated that between 30 and 75% of patients with cancer experience depression, poor nocturnal
sleep, and daytime sleepiness. Research designed to specifically examine associations of depression with subjective
and objective sleep measures is lacking. Thus the purpose of these analyses was to compare relationships among
depression, subjective and polysomnographic measures of sleep.
Methods: Secondary data analysis design was used to assess sleep quality, and self-rated depression of
patients with advanced cancer recruited from a university-based medical system. Responses to the Beck Depression
Inventory-II (BDI-II), Pittsburgh Sleep Questionnaire Index (PSQI), and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), and
polysomnography data were analyzed using descriptive, correlation, and regression statistics.
Results: A total of 114 patients with advanced cancer completed the study. PSQI and ESS scores were
positively correlated with BDI-II scores. Total nocturnal sleep time and a prolonged REM latency were also positively
related to BDI-II scores. When controlling for selected demographic and clinical features, the relationships between
polysomnographic variables and depression were no longer significant.
Conclusions: Depression was related to subjective sleep quality and daytime sleepiness suggesting that these
problems occur together. In addition, higher levels of depression were associated with nocturnal sleep time and
prolonged REM latency.
